MUSIC

I moved from Santa Fe where I worked for about 10 years, back to my precious home town of Las Vegas New Mexico. A whirlwind of events caused me to place my painting on the back burner for a while and focus on other art formats like music. It's far more complex than I had ever imagined with so much to learn, but did manage to write a copyright few songs, they are not polished, but it's loads of fun.

My passion for music began in November of 2008, and thanks to a dear friend of many years Toby Sena, he took the time to teach me the basics of rythm electric guitar, nothing fancy but lots of fun. Like anything it takes lots of practise, I basically play music to have fun, relax and unwind from life.
