Lived in STL, Phoenix, Baltimore, Istanbul and Panama. Played music and wrote songs in each. In bands I play bass, but my main focus is songwriting. A great song is a novel and a movie and a symphony rolled into a atomic package. My greates musical thrill was watching a dancefloor of literally "Young Turks" rocking out to one of my songs in Istanbul, while playing bass for the all Turkish band 45 Degrees.
