He was born in the foothills of the Colorado Rockies. His father was a used snake oil salesman and his mother was a dentist for a traveling sideshow. It wasn't until age 20, that he decided to pick up the guitar. One late fall afternoon, he had near death experience with an elephant that happened to possess a mechanical hand. This lead to a what can only be described as a spiritual awakening. He eventually panhandled his way down the panhandle, to Austin Texas where he met the love of his life. He has been happily married for several years and is the proud father of two girls. He also has a Siamese cat named Carlos who is blind in one eye.
I was born in a small southern Texas ranching town called Hebbronville. I was drawn in by the sounds of pop radio hits and always felt like I should be jamming in my school bands from day one. I would sneak in and hit the drums at school games when no one was around. When I declared I wanted to play the drums in Jr high, I was steered away and told that playing drums was more for the boys. So, not willing to give up my passion for music, I took up the flute. I enjoyed it and was actually quite good… however… I did not feel the fire I felt I should be feeling. Years later, I relocated to Austin where I met and was mentored by Austin drummer and Texas Hall Of Famer’ Terri Lord. I have been playing drums for over 20 years now and have played with the likes of; The Hormones, Tallboy, Handful and Ursa Major… and I continue to play with; American People, SuperEtte, Mike Dubose & The Dissidents.
