"I come from Central Virginia, in the piedmont of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, where most of my family still lives. I’ve traveled around some, gotten some schoolin’, lived in the Northern VA/DC area, Spain, NYC, on a sailboat for a few years, on glorious Peaks island off the coast of southern Maine for 14 years, crossed Casco Bay and am now based in Portland. I started singing out in Washington Square park with some friends, and started writing songs around 2002.
"My guitar has accompanied me over hill and dale, on planes, trains, automobiles and buses, to foreign lands, on the high seas. I’ve worn blue collars, white collars, no collars. Dealing with some serious health stuff in the mysterious autoimmune realm a few years back helped me realize I’m on earth to sing. The road to healing has been transformative – and fun (though not always, especially in the beginning), and fascinating, and has precipitated a streaming flow of hope and percolating possibilties. Now I spend my life’s energy pursuing my musical dreams, centered around singing and connecting with people in this way. I’m creating my own collars of varying color/material/style."
