Born in West Virginia, moved to California at an early age. Began cello lessons at age 8. Switched to clarinet at age 12 when we moved - no strings at new school :( ... Began learning guitar at age 12. Jumped up a notch to bassoon when I entered high school. Acquired 1st banjo at age 16. Won scholarship to San Jose State on bassoon. Played in many community and professional orchestras. Previously a union musician: AF of M Local 616, Monterey County, CA), taught bassoon and guitar privately. Want to do more now that I have the time. I'm finally starting to really catch on to clawhammer and I love it. So far I'm doing well and I'm encouraged by all the great advice and support that I'm finding here at Banjo Hangout. So much more to do...
