Overview

I decided to start writing lyrics after listening to Quincy Jones at my graduation from New York University's Stern business school in 1998. At the graduation, Quincy talked about a young man who pretty much stalked him for years trying to peddle one song. A bad song at that. Quincy advised the young man to spend two years writing 200 songs and he would personally come to his home to look at them. Listening to the story I thought, "wow, I should do that". And that's what I did. I spend the next two years writing more than 200 songs, many of which are included in this collection. Fourteen years later, I am still writing lyrics. So, thanks to Quincy Jones for the initial inspiration.
