Previously living on the Big Island of Hawaii where he wrote for the nationally televised cable TV show, "Cookin' with Cutty", Jerry now resides in Austin, TX with his wife Denise and Shiner, their black labrador retriever. Recently retired from an insurance career, he's now dedicated to his lifelong love of music. "I'm a song writer, not a performer, although I produce and record demos in my home studio. While I played in bands all through high school, college, while serving in the US Air Force, and my early business career, I have no aspirations to be an artist. My objective is to write great commercially successful songs for artists looking to establish themselves".
