"Looking back, music has been a major factor in my life ever since, oh, somewhere around January 22nd, 1966. From there, at age two, picking out by ear “Lookin’ Out My Back Door” by CCR on an old piano in Stinnett TX, music has crossed just about every path I’ve ever taken. Interestingly enough though, it was a series of piano lessons around age six that got my feet wet in reading music, and ended up being the building block that allowed me to ultimately expand into all kinds of musical endeavors. Sixth grade was pivotal! That was the year I picked up the Clarinet and was officially 'in the band'! Going on into Jr. High & High School, it brought me six more years of countless yearly performances, both in Orchestra and Jazz Band, as well as marching on the field as a Valley Viking! (Mr. Smith) Currently, I've enjoyed working professionally both as a singer and instrumentalist in the Reno/Lake Tahoe area since around 2007, from playing in a Reno classic rock band to covering Dan Fogelberg nationally. But, it's been my work with Green Weather, a Truckee folk duo band, that has enabled me to embark on my greatest musical journey, which, in the end, has lead me to believe, that our truest connection is to project what is most pleasing to the ear.
