I was born and raised in the San Diego area and I grew up surrounded by a loving family, too numerous to list here. I love them all.
I picked up the Guitar at age the age of 17 and never put it down. I played in a number of garage and Top 40 Rock bands around the Southern California area until the age of 28. I enjoyed my time playing in bands, but now I just enjoy playing for my own enjoyment. I never was real comfortable in front of an audience, although I do still miss those days sometimes, especially my time playing along side my Best Friend and fellow Guitarist, Aaron.
To this day, rarely does a day go by that I don't pick up my Guitar, and I particularly like writing my own music, if only for myself and to satisfy my creative spirit.
I moved to Montana, at age 34, in search of a serene and peaceful existence surrounded by the beauty of the Mountains that I love. I subsequently met and married my lovely wife Jo, who is also a musician and a very creative person, and she has brought a great deal of richness to my life; namely: Clancy, Brittany. Jennifer, Tim, Jack, Hadley and many more folks comprised of her extended family and friends. We have been living in Stevensville, Mt with an assortment of critters; namely: Marley(my best bud who recently pass on), Gusty, Gilda, Marilu, Paco, Muncy, Mittens and Toaders.
I often wish I hadn't moved so far from my friends and family, but I have no real regrets; I've found my place.
