Bert says:

In my life I've dedicated myself to my artistic abilities. I consider myself first and foremost a songwriter/composer/musical performer. But plying this trade has brought me into contact with a wide range of artistic experiences, from magic to theatrical production and in recent years to the computer as applied to all of the arts. In each case I have devoted myself to the ideal of mastery and creative application. My fondest dream is to leave a legacy of good work and to have developed a reputation as a serious and committed artist.
