Born and raised in the midwest, I grew up with country music. As an adult I worked and lived in the Chicago area, where I became acquainted with many of the folk artists of the 60's and 70's and learned to appreciate the lyrics of that genre. "The Earl of Oldtown", where I met Steve Goodman, Jim Post, Bonnie Koloc, Fred and Ed Holstein and many other folksingers, was a favorite haunt of mine. Good times! Seems like I have always written songs. Though I do not consider myself a singer / songwriter, I have participated in gigs at the Mo Java, and Meadowlark, Lincoln, NE coffee houses, the Winfield House, Thorpe Opera House in David City, NE and performed at several of the Nebraska State Fair "Galaxy of Stars" events.
