About the Founder: I actually got into the music industry coming from the lawn & garden and hardware industry. I was a manufactuer's representative selling and servicing The Home Depots and big box home centers from Maine to Virginia. In 1999 I went through a divorce from a 29 year marriage. In the three years following my divorce, my mom was diagnosed with colon cancer, my dad attempted suicide because of my mom's condition and my brother was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. This led me into a deep depression. In 2001 I changed careers and purchased a graphic design business called Creative Desktop; closed on the purchase on 9/7/01 not knowing what was about to happen on 9/11. I changed the name of the business to Creative Group LLC as I felt the original name was already outdated and did what I could to keep it going despite the fact that I was still dealing with my depression. One day I happened to walk into a Circuit City, saw a keyboard, hit the demo keys that played the theme to the James Bond Movies for which I was a big fan of and, by impulse, purchased the keyboard, labeled the keys and used the built in loops to compose my music and write lyrics to go with it. If I had not gone to this Circuit City to buy this keyboard, I know for a fact you would never have seen the start of TBAIMS. In 2006 I remarried and wrote my vows into a song for our first dance at our wedding called This Special Moment. My producer, Bobbi Tammaro aka FunkeeBoy outsourced the vocals as I was the first to admit I could not sing on key. The only track you will hear me on is a bluesy rapping song called The Midlife Crisis Blues. All of the other song tracks are recorded by other independent music artists that my producer outsourced for the vocals.

I have written many poems, thoughts and even a short story that I compiled over the years dating back to my days in high school where I began writing an assortment of material during my adolescent years up to current times. I have saved many of these and decided to compile them into one place along with a history of my experiences growing up in New York, Massachusetts and more currently Florida. They are in no particular chronological order. I do include the lyrics to the songs I've written since I started to write in 1999. That was my therapy from going through a divorce from a 29 year marriage and following up years later with my second marriage where I wrote my vows into a song to be played for the first dance for our wedding.
