My music is available at

I currently live in Arizona, where I am exceedingly grateful to have a job driving a forklift, unloading trucks, and sweeping the warehouse floor. I also on rare occasions manage to record original songs for the amusement of a few steadfast friends.

My wife Alice and I are the prized possessions of two cats.
