My Story

Thank you for stopping by! I'm a 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  visit my friend's house across the street. His family had a piano and  I would explore the keys everytime I was over.  Eventually, my  mom and dad bought one for the family seeing that my brothers and I had expressed an interest in music. This inspired  me to get my first electronic 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,  Coldplay, 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 contact me.  I look forward to the possibility of being a part of your project. -Richard
