Once upon a time the Earth was a gigantic ball of hot gas Later came dinosaurs ,
the written word and truckstops
sometime after that I was a kid staring at a bedroom wall in Los Angeles wondering, "Will I ever go anywhere?"
Then one day, I did.
And then I started to play violin . For some reason this was embarrassing and so when I had to bring my fiddle to school I would hide it in the bushes. In high school I started a band called Fresh Corn . The first show was a flop prompting the high school newspaper headline "Fresh Corn Proves Hard To Digest."
Now I live in San Francisco where I teach fiddle and make music. I've toured the us, Europe and Japan with Diego's Umbrella, the Pine Box Boys and on my own.
I wrote the film score for "Gumby Dharma," an emmy-winning documentary about Gumby and his creator Art Clokey. Though my music has been placed in film, TV and radio, I mainly do it because it's fun and because I want you to have a good time here.
