There are plenty of lengthier bios to be found on my web site. However, here's the short version.
Online, I'm primarily known for my Todd Rundgren Connection website, the first (established in 1994) website to feature Todd Rundgren, even ahead of the artist's itself. Through these efforts, I also helped establish ToddFest/West, an annual gathering of Todd Rundgren fans held each year in Northern California.
With the success and early entry of the TR Connection, I was also instrumental in developing the first web sites for Larry Tagg, John Ferenzik and Lucid Dreamers as well as independent musician Gilly Nils.
I introduced web sites for various organizations in the Lutheran Community in Sacramento, California beginning in 1995. I developed early sites for Sierra Pacific Synod events and the local cable TV program "Lutherans ALIVE!" for which I was also an Executive Producer.
I also used the web to gather information for the Rio Linda High School Class of 1971 30 year reunion.
I developed and maintain a number of internal web applications for my employer, the California Department of Water Resources.
I play guitar and am the Praise Band Director for Lutheran Church of the Ascension in Citrus Heights, CA. I was formerly leader of the praise band How Majestic at Calvary Lutheran in Rio Linda, CA.
I've written two Rock Operas, a play, two monologues and 1 1/2 novels. The monologues were performed at the Thistle Dew Dessert Theatre in Sacramento, CA, and I've acted in a production at the Thistle Dew in the summer of 2011.
I've been married to my wife Cece since 1976, have two adult sons and a toddler granddaughter. I've recently started researching my wife's paternal family, and have discovered a lot of previously unknown information.
