For 25 years I composed original music for film and television, working with a wide range of writers and filmmakers, from Arthur Miller on the Emmy Award winning television film Playing for Time to James Cameron on Terminator, T2 and True Lies.
Being a successful composer in Hollywood was exciting and rewarding, but it was not my youthful dream. I came of age in the 60’s and my dream was to write songs that told the truth and made a difference in the world.
Borrowed Time is about what can happen to the dreams of our youth, and how “growing up” affects the alignment between our soul’s purpose and what we actually end up doing with our time on this planet.
Through stories, characters, and the songs I wrote throughout my life, the show shares my journey from growing up in my parent’s zany school of the arts on Long Island, auditioning for Clive Davis at Columbia records, getting signed to Paul Simon’s publishing company, playing keyboards for Hall and Oates, girlfriends, marriage, children, divorce, getting immersed in the world of film composing, and eventually discovering it’s never too late to change course and reclaim our dreams.
