More info

I was born in the mid-1970s back when disco music, bell bottoms and mood rings were all the rage.

I'm originally from New England where I lived until 2006. I then moved to Florida and lived there for almost 13 years. In late 2018, I moved to Texas.

I've been playing music ever since I was 6 years old, and got my first guitar in 1990. But well before that I was playing workstation synthesizers (keyboards) so I also play that too from time to time. A full list of my gear is on the gear page.

I do hold a college degree in Video & Radio Communications.

I first got on the internet in 1996. Yes, that long ago. I remember the days of dial-up internet, Netscape Navigator, IRC chatting, GeoCities, Usenet Newsgroups and so on. I even sometimes watch internet videos on old computer hardware just because I think it's interesting. Yeah, I'm a nerd. Sometimes.

In my former life I did work for large corporations. Some of the jobs I had were PC Technician, on-site laptop tech, phone support rep and laptop repair tech. I've also worked for smaller companies and held the position of senior editor. For one company I did tech-based articles and videos, and for another I did music-based (concentrating on instruments) articles. In those jobs I also managed large social media pages, newsletters with tens of thousands of subscribers (which included sales newsletters) and so on. I could write a tome on all the stuff I know how to do, but that would be quite a boring read.
