I am a retired studio musician that worked in Hollywood in the late 60’s till the late 70’s. I then went to college and earned a degree. I owned computer companies from 1985-1999. I retired from the computer business and turned my attention back to music full time. I have played with Jon Gibson, Darrell Mansfield and many other Christian recording artist over the years. I have been on several worship teams over the years in Southern CA as well as Austin TX. Very recently I took up Producing and have Produced three albums worth of songs in Austin TX. I arranged the songs and play various guitar parts on them as well. God has been so good to me and I am forever grateful for the many opportunities and blessing he has given me and my family.
