Born in San Francisco, 1957. Retired electrical engineer, now spending a lot more time playing guitar and writing songs. I hope folks out there get some enjoyment from my works. I appreciate feedback, although "you suck" isn't what I consider constructive criticism. I'd rather you explain why I suck... then maybe I can do better next time!
