Musician, Teacher, Dad
I teach people how to work this thing called a ‘Guitar’ and they give me money. And then I play the Guitar while people eat or drink or get married or even listen sometimes, and they pay me again, I work in heaven!
Born in Kansas City, I began playing the guitar at the age of 12 after seeing the Beatles play on the Ed Sullivan Show. After seeing that, I knew what I wanted to do with my life – playing in many bands, covering many different styles of music. Went on the road in 1977 and traveled from Oregon to Maine playing music all the way. I've now settled in Vermont, and have been fortunate enough to actually make a living teaching guitar and performing.
I teach guitar at the wonderful Middlebury Community Music Center in Middlebury, Vermont. Mahaney Center for the Arts at Middlebury college in Middlebury, Vermont. Also studio in St. Albans Vt.
I have 9 recordings to date and I’m working on my next project now.
