Stelling Staghorn and a Huber Lexington!
I am honored to say that my very first (and only) official banjo lesson, on 10/6/11, was with none other than Tony Trischka-in his living room; He certainly comes first for me in the long line of outstanding players.Todd Taylor, Bill Keith, Steve Martin, Tony Furtado, Dave Asti and the Hillbilly Gypsies; Cherryholmes; Steel Drivers; Earl Scruggs, John Hartford, Fred Sokolow, Bela Fleck, J.D. Crowe, Bill Evans, Terry Baucom, Jens Krueger and so many more. They're all unique and inspiring to me!

Was a Forensic Psychologist for many years. I taught Psychology at SUNY,Orange until Christmas of '09; I'm also a part-time Instructor at the Police Chief's Assoc. Police Academy in New Windsor, NY. I was a former Motorcycle Cop. I still maintain a part-time counseling practice in Matamoras, PA. Played the 'Joey' many years ago for a brief period, until I had a slight accident, and a rather large Bowie knife went through my hand...I think I can get around it now, but it's been 30 years, so I'm really learning all over again.
I'm the very proud Dad of three terrific grown kids...who couldn't have possibly turned out any better, and recently I'm a Grandpa of another beautiful little boy. My wife, Stacy, is the love of my life...and I'm grateful that she graciously puts up with my latest obsession-my Banjo. ;-) Overall, God has blessed me abundantly...
