This website is a project for my Communication Through New Media course I'm taking at SUNY Empire State College. I'll be adding a lot more biographical information here once the course has run its course, so to speak, and I promise when I'm finished you'll know more about me than you'll want to know.

I'll wet your appetite and hopefully ensure your return with a few teasers.

I'm a 55-year-old college student. I fell off a cliff in 1999, tumbling 80 feet to a rocky beach and somehow survived. I've released 7 albums: four with a band I started in Seaside Oregon and three solo. I write poetry, songs, short stories (working on a novel with two more stored in the back of my mind), play and movie scripts. I'm married to a red-headed Gemini (trust me, that's a whole plethora of stories right there). I'm a frustrated artist. I ride a 1983 Honda Sabre. I've worn many, many hats in my life, including, but not limited to: nose tackle, working cowboy, framer, finishing carpenter, prom king, husband (twice), father (6 times that I know of), brother (1 sister, 1 brother, again, that I know of), painter, sculptor, welder, body repairman, 6 ton press operator, lithographer, photographer, videographer, computer programmer, web designer, graphic designer, interior designer, landscaper, landscape designer, soldier, parachutist, hang glider, diver, recording artist, singer/musician ... and other things I'll think of when I'm not thinking about it.

Never learn to do anything. If you don't know how to do anything you can always find someone to do it for you. - Samuel Clemmens
