At the age of eighteen I attended Western Washington university.At the age of twentytwo I graduated from Western Washington University witha B.A. in Cultural Anthropology. I also started playing guitar at that time.Like most musicians, I was inspired. My friends on Vashon had been playinginstruments and making music since the time I left Vashon and went to college.When home for visits, I would sit and listen. Realizing I wanted to playmusic, one thing led to another, and I started playing. I haven't stoppedsince.
