Hi! Im a 52-year old professional musician who has lived in Portland Oregon my whole life. An accomplished singer, keyboardist and accordion player, I make my living performing, teaching, and recording all styles of music - jazz, rock, country, etc. Besides my love of music, I also enjoy movies (all-time favorite: Charlie Chaplin's "City Lights"), books (just read "True Grit" and loved it), and pretty much any passionate artistic endeavor - theater, painting, architecture - you name it. Having grown up in the Pacific Northwest, I'm a lover of the outdoors, especially hiking trips to Mt Hood and the Columbia Gorge, and camping trips to the Oregon Coast.
