Thanks for finding my website!
An article I wrote on music and Alzheimer's just came out in the July/August issue of AARP Bulletin. Click here to read it.
I am now living in Park City, Utah and working at the ABC News Station KSL Radio in Salt Lake City.

I am continuing to write and give lectures about Alzheimer's and the healing power of music. If you haven't seen the movie "Alive Inside" check it out, or to view the trailer, go to this website: aliveinside.us.
Also, check out the Music and Memory Program at musicandmemory.org.
Enjoy my book, and thanks for looking me up!
