I grew up in Seattle, Wa., (I'm a boomer) graduated from Catholic High School...12 years of Catholic education actually. Threw away a promising career as a supermarket clerk to be a bar band bass player for 15 years. I still get to play. Blues (Ben Wah and Late Night Trash), Jazz (with the fine guitar player Jeff Ziontz); I get to work my bass guitar behind a couple GREAT rock songwriters, Rich Brisbois and Ryan O'Toole of Big Grizzly (BTW our drummer "The Legend" Smokin' Dave Brooks was almost a rock star with "Coffin Break"). Cool huh? I'm a lucky man.
