After several years of playing the piano/keyboards professionally between Portland and Seattle (and beyond), I have stepped off the public musical scene after September 2001, 9-11, and remained unlisted to live a very private life. I continue to play music only for private events, worship services, and myself. But mostly focused my time on my personal life, being a dad, and learning to work in a different career role.
Recently, in 2012, I have stepped back into a more public profile after all these years, volunteering, sharing leadership experiences, playing music on special occasions, sharing information on health and fitness goals. I have
engaged several wonderful people along the way as I share pictures,
events, stories, life experiences, some whom have inspired me very much. I enjoy the journey - the discovery of people,
places, and experiences while discovering my own path;
A journey that continues to surprise and challenge
After avoiding the internet social
media over the years, I decided to set up my personal Google+ page to share pictures, information, and provide a means of contact for anyone who might be wondering where and when I fell off the earth. I owe a lot of thanks to all the people who have shared music with me in the past, an influence and a piece of my life that always stays with me. My thanks to the Mt. Saint Helen's Institute for introducing me to Google.
All my outdoor pictures are available to download and distribute, please give credit to the photographer (me unless noted). I love to share with everyone the beauty of the wonderful Pacific Northwest that I happen to be born and raised in, especially my childhood memories of the Mt Saint Helens and Spirit Lake area before that day in 1980.
To all the individuals who have work for me at Western Graphics & Data over the years, please download you team picture here. Do not hesitate to send me a message to say hello. I would enjoy hearing from you, where and how you are doing.
My music recordings and past live performances coming soon to "YouTube". Currently, I do not plan on any public music performances any time in the near future, just private engagements.
After my unhealthy years of living and being overweight, I took up the running again! My newest goal; start training this fall for my first marathon. I have completed two half marathons the past two years, and hopefully on Fathers Day, at the 2014 Vancouver USA Marathon (VUM), I will attempted my first full marathon.
If I make it, I might need a stretcher afterwards with a cold one - water of course :-)
See you there - Wish me luck!,
