In My Own Words:
I was brought upon this Earth by two parents, one of them being a mother of the female sex, whilst the other was a father of the male sex in the Northern suburbs of Atlanta, GA, USA during Celtic Football Club's run to the European Cup (just in time for the Summer of Love, marking the last time I was ever early for anything in my life).

I was brought upon this Earth by two parents, one of them being a mother of the female sex, whilst the other was a father of the male sex in the Northern suburbs of Atlanta, GA, USA during Celtic Football Club's run to the European Cup (just in time for the Summer of Love, marking the last time I was ever early for anything in my life). My life began in this time and place largely due to the fact that the aforementioned parents were also living under the same circumstances at the time. I attended public school in Gwinnett County, but don't feel too adversely affected by this fact. I took a year off before attending Georgia State University, learned how to play guitar, and thus was perfectly equipped to skip copious amounts of class time playing guitar in the park for beer money during Spring quarters. I was eventually able to drop out of school in a spectacularly ordinary fashion by the time I reached age 20. Since then I've played bass guitar in several incarnations of local bands that achieved various degrees of failure throughout the late 1980's/ early 1990's, falling in and out (and in again) of love with women, music, soccer, and life in general. Following a glorious lay-off resulting in nine of the most serene months of living Lebowski vida, I regained employment at one of the largest manufacturers of blood banking supplies in the world where I make enough money to feed, clothe, and inebriate myself when the occasion calls for it. I have returned to the music scene, playing bass guitar and butchering back-up vocals (and occasionally contributing music and/or lyrics) for Second Glance, (melodic music for a postmodern world). My main audience for musical performance until the gigs start rolling in is my daughter Savannah (born 06/10/1997, the 2320th anniversary of the death of Alexander the Great) and my wife Janet, dated since 1 November 2001 and married since 17 September 2005. When I'm not playing, I'm listening for the music that fills me with the sense of wonder and amazement I felt when I strummed my first guitar chord. Like Fox Mulder's truth, it is out there. I enjoy movies and reading both contemporary and underground literature as well. In addition to being the best father and husband I can be and making my mark in music, my ambitions are to learn how to sail and, more importantly, to relocate to an area where I'll be able to own my own boat to sail at my convenience.
