"I've been a professional musician for more than twenty years in and around OKC, Nashville, and Austin. I've recorded five albums, the most recent being Gypsy Moon, which we recorded at Blue Rock Studios just outside of Austin, Texas. And though I've been a songwriter since my teens, I maintain--without hesitation--that poetry is my first and foremost love. I write non-fiction for the folks in the world who refuse to read poetry. But I'm always trying to win them back over."
