people know me as a recording engineer, a music teacher and as the founder of Last Stop Records. I'm also a singer, composer
In 2019, I released 'Thornton Beach Vista' which is the follow up to 2017's 'Desire Paths'. Both are available worldwide through the usual digital outlets.
For many years, I have enjoyed the privilege of recording creative albums and playing in diverse and challenging musical groups. I was born and raised in San Francisco, but I have lived in Spokane, Los Angeles, Marin County and Boston. Between gigs, I earned a bachelor's degree from Berklee College of Music in 1994.
Having grown up in the 70's & 80's I heard everything that was on radio and eventually MTV, also listening to global superstars the likes of Pink Floyd, Rush, Sabbath, Madien, ect.... I'm a huge fan of American bands with hard rock
roots like Alice In Chains, Clutch, Tool, System of a Down, Faith No More... You will find everything from Buckethead, Primus, Black Cobra, Jellyfish, Witchcraft, Earthless, and Jeff Beck in my recent plays folder.
I grew up buying records, then cassettes and tons of CD's, which I still have.
The years I spent playing at Secret Studios with San Francisco band Black-Tape produced two albums of heavy rock music.
I'm always performing around town with Tall Shadows playing the classic rock songbook.
In the digital age, I have released five albums
of my singer/songwriter material with Last Stop

Dedications, The Ghost of
Electricity , Desire Paths and Thornton Beach Vista) I love ROCK 'N ROLL..... I have always been fascinated by the lyrics
of Bob Dylan. I think Neil Young is one of the finest songwriters and performing artists
of our time. Ryan Adams, Jason Falkner, Killian MacGeraghty... I'm a huge fan. I'm always
working on new stuff and so I have dozens of unreleased songs that are in some stage of
the recording process. Thanks to my fans for purchasing albums on iTunes, Bandcamp & Cdbaby.
