He has been teaching for over twenty-five years, has performed hundreds of concerts in forty states, been played on the radio in all fifty states and has written and recorded hundreds of songs... and many other things that sound impressive, although his friends will still tell you that he is a dork. He also enjoys riding his bike, gardening, cooking, dad jokes and a good cup of coffee.
