I was born in San Francisco and have travelled extensively playing music throughout the US and Europe. I started playing the guitar when I was nine and at the same time started playing the clarinet. over the years I have also studied and played the alto saxophone, electric bass, dulcimer all professionally. I recorded five CD's and numerous individual songs. I always had a fascination for jazz and from 1997 - 2004 had various trios and quartets playing my music. But I've always loved playing the guitar and singing a song. I also really love electronic and experimental music. I started working with synthesizers in 1975 and began home recording at the same time. I used to love my Atari computer and Mirage keyboard and made many relaxation recordings for yoga and accupuncture practitioners. All in all, I love musical sounds in any template, form and color. I feel open and ready to document ideas that come my way.
