I grew up in a family of musicians that goes back a few generations. This helped make writing and playing a lot easier. I started seriously learning to play guitar at 12 and started writing at 14. Played in a couple of local bands until joining the Army in 74. After my service I met my wife and raised two girls while still playing and writing. During this time I also learned to play Mandolin, Bass, and Keys. Now that the girls are grown, I play a few occasional shows and do studio work.
The San Francisco Bay area is where I currently live and perform. I play live acoustic versions of my original songs along with some Great Classic covers. I write my lyrics and produce my songs in my home studio. I love collaborating with other artists and experimenting with different genres of music.
There's nothing like playing Live and interacting with a crowd! Previous bands I've played with include: Exeter, Loop 610, Diversion, MPG (maxwell peterson group), and Oflockit which is me and a few guest musicians.
