I got my first electric guitar when I was living in Berkeley, Ca. in 1976 and started writing songs in 1982 after a motorcycle accident in Hawaii.
I've been living in Sonoma County for the last 25 years, painting fabric and on paper, doing shows sometimes as a solo player, sometimes with a band. I currently live with my cats and spend time writing songs, riding my bicycle, gardening and designing/making clothing.
In 1978, I moved to San Francisco. There I did shows at the Mabuhay Gardens in North Beach on Broadway, the On Broadway club, the Sound of Music on Turk St., various parties and coffeehouses around the city.
In 1986, I moved to Sonoma County, 50 miles north of SF. I've played shows at Sonoma St. Univ, the Phoenix theater in Petaluma, the Old Vic in Santa Rosa,the Thursday Night Market, A'roma Roasters Coffeehouse, the Forestville Club and various open mikes around town
