Started playing guitar in the 70's. Vocals & writing music soon followed with a couple of local midwest bands. Moved to & lived in the Phoenix, AZ area for nineteen years where I played in the band Atrox for several years, and led a band called The Stand for several more. Written my own original music for the past couple of decades & played guitar as my main instrument from Jackson Hole, Wyoming to Phoenix, Arizona. Moved back to Illinois in '99 and played in The Chill Factor, a local area classic rock band for about six years. Working 2nd shift at the moment, but since the band have done some serious guitar study and continued to write, playing all the instruments and percussion on my originals. It's always a continuous learning process... and always near and dear to my heart.
