I was born in Kentucky and grew up on a farm where we had no indoor plumbing but lots of tobacco and cows.  It was a great way to grow up, but I hungered for something more.  I went off to college, majored in theatre and pursued a career acting in regional theatre, off-off Broadway theatre and independent film. After living for forty years in New Jersey, I found myself returning to my roots and writing songs influenced by much of the music I heard as a kid.  The songs are a little country, a little folk, but really hard to place in any one category.  I've been married for forty years (to the same woman...!), I'm a damn good cook, and I like long walks on the beach.
