Bio

One Saturday afternoon in November of 2006, I decided I didn’t like my job anymore. I wasn’t getting any emotional satisfaction: it was deadening my existence. I was reckless, alienating my closest friends...I was aching to feel even an ounce of really being alive. Things were continuing to decline -- it just kept building...

One Saturday afternoon in November of 2006, I decided I didn’t like my job anymore. I wasn’t getting any emotional satisfaction: it was deadening my existence. I was reckless, alienating my closest friends...I was aching to feel even an ounce of really being alive. Things were continuing to decline -- it just kept building...
I dreaded getting out of bed every day, stayed up too late every night, and still managed to hate every minute of all of that.
So I bought a Marshall half-stack, and on that Saturday afternoon, with my Les Paul connecting me to that Marshall, I felt that somehow this was the path to salvation.
I kept my job (because a man’s gotta eat), and I continued to hone the craft. I listened to a lot of music -- all kinds. I studied, too -- and now I try to understand what is going on in the recording when I'm listening to it. By December of 2012, I was ready to record my album, “Foundation.”
I wrote, performed and recorded, engineered, mixed and produced every aspect of this album, and got the good folks at CD Baby’s Soundlab to handle the mastering. What started out as “sanity maintenance” years ago has led to this: sometimes working on it for 8 hours a day; other times spending only 15 minutes (but making it a “quality” 15 minutes). If patience is a virtue, I must have gone through the “virtue” line twice by now!
