I began my music career in the early 1970's writing songs, headlining at local clubs and warming up for the occasional visiting national act. In addition to extensive touring experience in the United States, I made several trips to Europe in the '70's and '80's opening shows for a number of prominent artists including Don McLean and Cat Stevens. I've been featured at events from British Columbia to California, including Bumbershoot, the Bite of Seattle, the North Vancouver and Victoria (BC) Folk Festivals and the Western Washington (Puyallup) Fair, to name a few.
