This is me playing keyboards in Mission Bay RV Park in San Diego California. I love blues piano and I don’t like reading piano music. Yup , I shave my head sometimes with a razor. It gets hot, like Pedro.
My wife Danielle and I have known each other since 3rd. grade. Currently, she works as a massage therapist. Loves being outdoor. Enjoys a few episodes of Judge Judy.
This was our first R.V. Danielle named it ”Cottontail” We were in the amazing White Mountains here in northern Arizona. I did allot of work on the website in that trailer. In fact, I’m writing this right now from our RV in Sedona Arizona. Currently we have a bigger one named “River”
Teaching blues piano. I try to jam with my students as much as possible.
My wife Danielle and I like riding bikes. This is the neighborhood we grew up in and still have a house there.
I have never thrown a drumstick away. Here are a few of them.
We love this camp spot in the White Mountains, Arizona. The song I used is Guitar Town by Steve Earl.
Fishing at big Lake, Az. Drinking a “Chattahoochee”

My best buddy Ralph Patlan playing with “Head” From Korn. Ralph and I have been fishing together since 2002. He is one of the best record producers in the biz.

Our favorite place…
Hanging with my pal and hero Gary Mallaber. I was probably 16 here. Gary has played drums on so many classic rock hit songs. Listen to Take The Money and Run. His performance is legendary.
This is the amazing Verde River I have been fishing on my whole life.
Yeah it might get a little hot in the summer, but Arizona is my favorite place.
