I have been a music fan my entire life: from running around the house listening to Monster Mash on a 45 to AM radio in the back of my parents car in the 70's, to 80's pop rock, punk, hardcore, 90's alternative, classic jazz, folk, techno, etc. Basically... you know ... the works. I began playing guitar in college when sports and skateboarding faded as my primary hobbies. I then quickly got into recording, first with a Yamaha 4-track, then a Roland VS digital recorder, and now on my Mac, using mainly GarageBand and a host of outboard gear and mics. I have a small live room (drums, guitar and bass amps and mixing board) which is actually in my garage with my living room functioning as the control room. Anyone I know who has a song idea is always welcome to record, and many have. I may post songs from many of these configurations, all of which I have played or sung on, and all of which I have "produced".

Music Background Played some flute and accordion when I was younger, but never seriously. Started playing guitar in college and then moved on to singing, bass guitar, drum kit, some keys, shakers, hand drums, tin whistle and most recently soprano ukelele. All self taught. Very little live playing experience.
