About Me

I started playing music in the second grade and continued my career as a classical oboe player through the middle of college. The whole time, I found myself attracted to blues and jazz but my parents didn't have ANY - they were total classical freaks. So it never occurred to me that I might switch to a different instrument. I tried to channel that energy by hoping that whatever band or orchestra I was in would play some Gershwin, Copland, Bernstein - at the time I wasn't even really aware that these were american jazz-inspired composers - but that was indeed the music I wanted to play as an oboe player. Unfortunately, you can't just throw a symphony orchestra together because you want to play the oboe solo in Rhapsody in Blue. So eventually I just gave up and quit playing oboe. It was many years later when a friend gave me a "learn harmonica" book with a cassette tape and C harp. I mastered the stuff on the cassette pretty quick, and my harmonica journey began. Now, blues is home for me. I picked up the sax a few years back and love being able to switch between them. And that is already enough said.

Interests

In addition to music (I help to run a pro jam regularly and have a band called BlueState) I have a business making cool stuff harmonica players want. It is called BlowsMeAway Productions. 

Beyond that I'm a sometime photographer, cook, foodie, wino, father, teacher, machinist, mechanic, and generally a shit disturber.
