I am the real deal, writing the high and low tides of one sailor's life. In 1978 I earned my Coast Guard license and started a small charter sailing company in Bellingham, WA. The business grew slowly over the years, until I advertised in SAIL magazine and expanded the charter business into the British Virgin Islands of the Caribbean. My dream of somehow "wrestling a living from the sea" was coming true, and it was almost too much fun!
When the ever-expanding economy began to go slack in the late 90's, I had to furl sail and crank the engine of necessity called "What do I do now?"
I began recording and producing the music I have written and performed since I was 13 years old.
"The Captain's Collection" 2 Cd set above, is my favorite, they are my Maritime Poems set to my music. I have preformed these ballads at NW Boat festivals, WA State Fair, many backyard bbq's, rest homes, the Seattle Folklife Festival and once for a convention of US Navy officers in Marysville, WA.
In the Caribbean, I became a semi-legend to locals and tourists, chartering by day and playing the bars in the BVI's by night.
One warm Caribbean night, when the Marina Cay generator went out, I had to stop playing music and be the bartender while the real bartender got a flashlight and went down the trail to get the power going. Marina Cay is owned by the Bacardi Rum Company. I poured free rum drinks and cold beers 'til the bartender came back. He thanked me with a bottle of Bacardi ( Hah! ) and I went back to playing my songs.
I Moved to Hawaii in 2002, to live the rest of my life without Washington State's beautiful cold rain and snow. I earned a musical living performing for most of the dinner boat cruises, QuickSliver, Trilogy, Teralani, SV WindJammer. I played for six years at the famous "Pioneer Inn" in Lahaina and many other venues on Maui, including Merriman's, Five Palms, Rielly's, The Sands, Pineapple Grill, Marilyn Monroe's House / the Kamehameha Golf Club and Fleetwood's on Front Street.
I dated crazy Maui women and wrote a book about it. The songs on the Cd "Tiki Torch Songs" above, mirror the book. An expert at procrastination, I just published that book on Amazon.com in August, 2015. This is the first book in my "Moving to Hawaii Series".
The second romance novel is called "MAUI LEIS AND LIES" and will be published in Winter of 2015.
The third book, "MAUI OFF LINE", is the story of this lovely lady finding my profile online at an Asian dating site and the crazy places she takes me. We were married in Hawaii in 2006. She has been very supportive putting up with a musician husband. She was my inspiration for writing the songs on the Hawaiian style Cd's:
"Under the Spell of Hawaii" and "Sweet Hula Girl"
