I was born in Indiana, raised in Illinois and now I enjoy life with my family up in Wisconsin.  Like the man in “Unfinished Songs”, I think I “always wanted to be a songwriter, but it was a distant dream.”  I had written a couple songs and had some other lines and ideas, but I never really got too far. 

Then a while back, I got to play a couple songs for some people at a coffee house type venue.  The reaction I got fired me up and I’ve been knuckling down on my writing ever since.  I just finished my first CD. 

I like it when I can make a real connection with the audience by coming up with some small, descriptive detail.  Contact me if you’d like me to play at your place, hopefully within a reasonable distance of Kohler, WI.
