ABOUT

In the words of Popeye... I yam what I yam...

I played a lot when I was a kid, then life happened and I had to grow up and take care of adult responsibilities. I am now getting back into playing music and having a lot of fun with it. Sometimes it news frustrating because I have memory of being able to do a lot of things that seem to come a lot harder now.
