ABOUT

Interesting fact is that folk music, like Dylan, Simon and Garfunkel, Pete Seeger, etc., is making a huge comeback!  My acoustic gigs focus mainly on that tradition and I find that more and more people are requesting those songs and my 12-string style!  The awesome thing is I was there and come from that era!  What an amazing piece of history that I can share and bring to life!

Music has always been an integral part of my life and I have a passionate desire to share it.  I have been playing and singing since I was 10 years old.  I learned the violin and started singing in 4th Grade.  Guitar lessons soon followed and playing and singing soon took up more and more of my time.  In High School, I was part of an award-winning barbershop quartet, choir, and many bands from folk to rock.  College found me as a music major where I learned form, structure, theory, and performance.  My musical life has found a balance with my life as a boat captain and scuba instructor.  In addition, I have attained a Master's Degree in Archaeology and Anthropology.  

My life in Maui is a blend of the sea and music, but lately the music has gained a louder voice.  Influences lately range from Dylan and Petty to Woody Guthrie, Miles Davis, Keith Richards to Bach and Mozart.  Eclectic is the word that comes to mind!  All this has combined to form a unique sense of presentation and sound that is coming into its own.
