I was born and spent my early years in the North End of Saint Paul, MN, US, where I currently reside.  I’ve worked as a professional musician most of my life, performing in the US, Europe, Central and South America.

Other jobs I have had include: soldier, taxi driver, sheet rocker, tree planter, software developer, chef, dishwasher, truckdriver, music teacher, tamale vendor, urban farmer, railroad worker and a scattering of day jobs.

Being a father has been the most exciting, educational and rewarding career.

Following my interests, I write on a free range of topics, some stories have evolved into books !

I often see faces in trees, clouds and toast.
