I've loved the banjo since I was 5 but grew up in an area that didn't know anything about bluegrass or anything to do with the banjo. And so it was many years later when I moved to Seattle that I was finally connected with an instrument that called out to me from the first notes of the Dueling Banjo as a kid along with the ongoing fascination of Roy Clark my childhood hero to the later notes of Steve Martin's earlier work as a comic. Call me strange and most of my friends did, I was always drawn to any music under the influence of the 'Boom Chuck' rhythm... I've played piano since the age of three and still remain musically illiterate. Composing, recording and playing for film I make about outdoor extreme sports & adventure in my limited fashion remain my way for now.
