I spent much of my life in denial of my artistic orientation, trying to “pass” in the corporate world, eking out a living. After decades of secretly writing and playing music, I’ve come out of the closet, and live my life openly as a musician and composer. In 2011 I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Composition.

Hey, Janet. My blog/podcast: Are You Still Dreaming goes live on December 24. I'd love to interview you via Skype for the podcast. The interview would take about 40 minutes, and we would just talk about what motivated you to go back to school and launch a new career after 40. The purpose of my blog is to inspire people by telling stories of people who are still starting afresh and/or living their dreams after 40 or despite illnesses or setbacks. I can send you an advanced copy of my first blog post if you want a better idea of what I'm doing.
