I was born and raised the oldest of eight kids in a music-loving home in Northern California. I've since lived all over the Pacific Northwest, Idaho and Utah, with a wife and four kids of my own. I have made a career of leading sales and operations teams to be their best for a handful of companies, but music is my true passion. I play guitar and mandolin, and my true joy is playing with my family, singing the styles and songs my own dad learned from his dad.
I'm a husband, father, leader, coach, trainer, picker, singer, Scoutmaster, and Mormon. Check out my blog, titled after my favorite Townes Van Zandt song, To Live is to Fly. Let's find some things in common!
