About Me

I’m a musician, songwriter, and music teacher in Berkeley, California.

I have been playing music professionally since co-founding Bay Area Ska sensations, The Uptones, in 1981.

I teach guitar and coach young bands in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I am also a professional WordPress consultant, creating sites and blogs for friends and clients since 2010.

I co-founded and help run Elephant Backup, an authorized Livedrive reseller providing great deals on cloud backup and storage.

I blog about any random thing here, and about classic old recordings at PublicDomain4U. I’m down with Bernie Sanders and I love cats.

What else? I’m catching up on updating my own site finally, which I’ve been neglecting while I work on other projects. I’m on FB and Twitter.

Thanks for popping in!
