ABOUT

I played professionally for 12 years (mid-60s thru the mid-70s) before switching careers to Software Engineering. Since then I've done some playing here and there and played in a nine piece corporate band. My primary instrument is guitar, but I also play keys, bass, and sing.

I have very diverse tastes in music (e.g., progressive rock, classic rock, fusion, jazz, funk, R&B, pop, blues, classical, crossover, electronic, etc.) and have studied music Arranging and Composition at Berklee and Jazz Education at UNT. While my background is rooted in classic rock, I'm currently interested in connecting with musicians who would like to do some collaboration on original recordings and/or some light gigging work doing a variety of musical styles.

The first four tunes listed below are from my first album, Eclectric, that I recently completed after retiring from my software engineering career. I wrote, played, sang, arranged and recorded all of the parts. The other two tracks were ripped from live video recordings. I played Lead Guitar on Carry On Wayward Son with our corporate band at the 2000 Wildflower Festival and I played Piano, Lead Guitar and sang harmonies on Hold The Line with a five piece band at a local club gig.
