I was born in Newark, NJ. I spent most of my school years in Princeton, NJ. During high school I went "down the shore" to see live rock shows in Asbury Park,NJ. After college I bought a house in Freehold, Nj just 2 blocks from Route 9, and my first child, another Jersey Girl, was born in Freehold Hospital. When I first heard Springsteen I knew I had heard the voice of the Messiah of the Pine Barrens and the Turnpike.
