Friendly. Easy going. Affable. Fun. A good listener. I was a social worker for over 20 years in Oakland, and I met countless beautiful, crazy, kind people that I learned from on a daily basis. Now I live in the hills about 60 miles North of the Golden Gate Bridge. I am a songwriter who likes community, adventure, and expression. Sometimes I travel to play in far off places. I lived in Oakland for 31 years. I loved being in a place where 150 different languages are spoken. I grew up in small towns in Southeast Ohio. I am a great singer. A good guitar player. I love being in the mountains and Southern states. I like being outdoors, hiking, riding my bike. I like teaching and learning. I don't smoke, drink, or take drugs.
