I'm an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, vocalist and producer with a broad range of musical experiences. I co-fronted the Cheatin' Hearts, a popular Los Angeles country/rock band featuring myself, Sneaky Pete Kleinow (founding member of legendary Flying Burrito Bros.), John Jorgenson (who later went on to play with Elton John) and rockabilly siren Kittra Moore,  as well as other notable Southern California bands.

In 1996, I made Minnesota my home.

I've been working as an original artist, sideman and session player ever since, handling bass, acoustic and electric guitars, bouzouki, mandolin, Dobro, and lap steel. I've played in a number of Twin Cities ensembles. My first love, though, is songwriting, and I'm hoping that I improve with every new set of songs. My latest tunes were demoed in my home studio, and recorded in Nashville, TN. I'd love for a broader audience to experience my music.

These days, I'm focusing on writing, recording and producing my own music, as well as producing projects for friends and other clients.
