I was born in Philadelphia, PA, and started classical guitar at 12, played lots of folk with friends though high school. Sang in various ensembles. While living on Eastern Long Island, started playing rhythm guitar with LITMA’s pick-up band for their dances (the Long Island Traditional Music Association). In the 90s had a Renaissance music band and played lute/guitar in that. After 12 musically dry years in Alaska (for various reasons), now living in the SW Portland area and wanting to play again. Have always enjoyed the music and looking to have fun with it and meet other like-minded people!
