About Jerry

I've lived an amazing life which has supplied me with material for my writing. Starting as a teenager, I spent the better part of 4 years fighting my own little drug war in the streets of NYC. I went on to become a professional fighter, ranked one of the top ten kickboxers in the world for 11 years. I was a keynote speaker for Network 3, an anti-drug program
That life I lived gives me a unique outlook on the world and helps me to write about very interesting characters.
I just finished the biography of Melody Gardot which she asked me to write. I was her driver, adviser, videographer, and bodyguard. There's a woman's life that would make an incredible movie.

Unique traits: Rated one of the top 10 kickboxers for 11 years. And even though I've been kicked and punched in the lead for more than 40 years, I'm a damn good writer.
