The story of my life for those who must know:

I was born near the Wallowa mountains in a small town called Enterprise, Oregon January 16, 1963. I grew up closer to Portland though and was surrounded by trees, blueberries (which we grew), and the cascade foothills. I became interested in drums at an early age and remember waiting anxiously for Hogan’s Heroes to come on TV so I could hear the snare intro to the theme. I also remember playing and replaying the percussion opening to Dr Zhivago’s overture. I would dive down and stick my head under the console stereo after starting the turntable to get the full effect.
