From an early age I had a passion for music and art, and studied both in my youth. I ended up making a living with graphic design but I never stopped making music.
I learned drumming in elementary school, took some private piano lessons, and eventually discovered the guitar!
The Rogues, my first band in Junior High School, played surf and rock music at private parties, and at our Junior High School graduation dance. In high school I was in Yesco Train playing rock, blues, and originals at cool gigs in Hollywood, the Ballroom on Catalina Island, and our High School Graduation dance.
I traveled around with my acoustic guitar writing original songs for awhile and eventually started my graphic design business, Abacus Graphics. I had fun playing in the Smoking Wood Peckers band for 20 plus years.
Now, I’m roaming free and making music with my friends in the beautiful Flathead Valley, in Northwest Montana and loving it!
