Biography:
I started off as a brass musician, playing in school and military bands, and orchestras. My Kamaka Soprano was my first stringed instrument, and although I've dabbled in Guitar, Ukuleles are still my "string thing." I took a long break from playing, and just recently came back to it. I'm an old retired guy and have plenty of time to enjoy life and the Ukulele!
