By Day: Working on the music, teaching, cooking, qi-gong.

I knew I wanted to be a musician when… I found myself getting more and more into it, soaking up good influences in my youth by playing with friends, going to concerts and immersing myself in listening to records = hooked.

Dream Band: Dream 1: Musicians from all corners of the world gathering in a huge room to experience what we can make happen with one note. Dream 2: Hammond organist, two guitarists (one slide), percussion section, horns and strings, vocalists ready to wail on cue, dancers. Interested parties, get in touch!

Did you know? My nickname in high school was Janus, which I much later named one of my albums.////
