Growing up on the shores of Lake Michigan, I played blues in my younger years. After escaping the steel mills for greener pastures, (Vermont, Utah, Alaska, last/best, Wyoming) my musical horizon broadened. Bluegrass, transitioned to Irish traditional, transitioned to rock and then big band jazz, and now country. I have been fortunate to have had so many opportunities to learn from various musicians who have allowed me to fill in anywhere I can. This life has blessed me with the chance to play and expand my talents on guitar, mandolin, bass, drums and harmonica. I am passionate about contributing any way I can.
It's taken some hard work and practice, but it's all been so worth it. I've had the opportunity to meet some wonderful folks and play great music with them. I'm am now happy and grateful to be part of Whiskey’s Alibi, a group that feels more like a family than a band.
When not working on instruments or playing music, I spend as much time as I can up in the hills mountain biking and cross country skiing. I really enjoy scooping up dead fish that died laughing at my poorly tied flies as well.
