Once a crisis counselor for troubled teens, over the years Jeff moved into the world of marketing, corporate team building and event management, in addition to writing songs of course. For a decade, he served as a the Southeast Regional Marketing Manager for Borders Books. He had the privilege of working with many notable personalities including Gene Simmons of KISS, Bryan Adams, David Sedaris, Anderson Cooper, Harry Connick, Jr., and Loretta Lynn to name just a few. A great deal of Jeff’s time at Borders was spent implementing marketing and events programming, and training employees on operations and execution of marketing initiatives.
As a writer/artist Jeff’s experience includes a 3 year stint as a staff songwriter for The Songs of Love Foundation. His song “Until That Day Comes” will be the theme song on a new TV show called Rescue Ink in 2013. Recently, Business for the Arts of Broward added Jeff to their roster as an "Artist in Residence." He has produced over 20 recording projects, including several benefit CDs. His newest CD, “7 Days”, is being used as a fundraising tool for literacy groups and animal rescue organizations. Jeff lives with his 4 dogs—splitting time between Pompano Beach, FL and Nashville, TN.
