Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, I was born into a musical family. My father was a musician with the talent to play just about any instrument you placed in his hands. His love for music was so strong he never made it past the seventh grade. Once free from school he began a journey that took him all the way to Nashville, where he earned the right to be inducted into the Country Music Songwriters Hall Of Fame.
I must have inherited his passion for music because my life started out much the same way. At age nine I began playing drums. By age eleven I was playing at small teen dance clubs. At age thirteen my focus changed to guitar. By age sixteen I had been in several garage bands and was ready to get serious about my career, but life had plans of its own! Just prior to leaving school something happened that I did not anticipate, I met my wife. Before I knew it my focus had turned to marriage & kids , so I laid down my guitar and picked up my tools and built a career in floorcovering. Not very glamorous, but it paid the bills! Music became a dream, but the desire to play never faded away. For the next 30 years I was without any gear so I listened and I learned. Now at age 53, with kids grown and my wife by my side, it's my turn to fly! So begins my journey in hopes of leaving behind some small contribution to the world of music!
