I've sung in choirs since I was in grade school. I saved my money as a teenager to buy a Gibson acoustic guitar. I learned to play chords and sing folk songs. Beatles vs. The Stones? Beatles. I fell in love with jazz when I lived in St. Louis. Long ago, I did PR for the Seattle Opera. I've sung Christmas carols on a street corner in West Seattle's Alaska Junction to raise money for the Food Bank.

Some people call me the World's Oldest Pearl Jam fan. 

“Music is the strongest form of magic.” – Marilyn Manson
