My Story

Thank you for stopping by! I'm an Adult Contemporary/Pop songwriter from Southern California.  Along with a career in education, I spend my free time writing songs. I truly enjoy the songwriting process. I love coming up with new melodies and watching a song take shape. My love for songwriting happened early. At the age of seven, I would  go over to my friend's house, across the street, and would explore the keys on his family's piano. This inspired  me to get my first keyboard, which eventually lead to a curiosity about the construction of the type of songs I was hearing on Top 40 Radio. My influences include Billy Joel, Richard Marx, Diane Warren, Max Martin, Desmond Child,  Ryan Tedder, and whole list of other artists.

Please take a moment to listen to my songs. If you are interested in any of my songs for your project, please feel free to email me at I look forward to the possibility of being a part of your project. -Richard
