Biography

For years I've worked developing small websites and fixing computers. Now I work in retail in an effort to get more time to make one of my creative efforts do something. I dabble in writing (lyrics, screenplays, stories), I am slowly learning Final Cut Express video editing, and I enjoy making bits of music. My big goal is to get back to cartooning -- but that will likely take surgery for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

I like nearly all music (barring most rap and country -- you'll find me picking up bluegrass or classic country rather than today's power country pop), so I won't list favorites, although I'll admit Prog Rock (from Pink Floyd to Genesis to Marillion and Porcupine Tree) will never be absent from my iPod.

Some of my old cartoons, before I had to stop drawing due to CTS, are available at my website: Off Balance Productions Maybe I'll get around to redesigning it some day. Ha!

My biggest music project of 2009 was the "Five by Seven" CD -- songs made from the poems a friend's father wrote for her mother. More about it can be found in my blog article here.
