Born  in  and raised in
Greeley Iowa, 1958.
I started guitar lessons for my ninth birthday.
By the time I was ten I had started to play in a band in local clubs.  After
High School I put myself through
Electronics School
while playing on the
weekends.  Upon graduation I worked in electronics for about 6 months before
starting to play full time on the road.  Playing in clubs all over the
midwest.  We started playing winters in
Florida
where I would soon join a
full time band there and move to
Florida
.  After a short while I was hired
to play full time at Church Street Station in the Cheyenne Saloon in
Orlando
.  I also worked at Disney at the Diamond Horseshoe during the day.
I spent the next 15 years at the
Cheyenne and all over Orlando
.  This
included being in the band that won the True Value, GMC national battle of
the bands in 1991.  It was fun having Willie Nelson hand us $50,000.
   I went to
Nashville
and toured with George Ducas (who wrote Just Call me
Lonesome) and freelanced with several other artists including Brian White
and John Michael Montgomery.  I decided to get off the road and come back to
Orlando
where I currently work for the Phone company during the week and
thrilled to be working with McKinley & Beggs playing pedal steel and fiddle
at the River Ranch on the weekends.  I am married with 4 kids and a new
puppy!
