Welcome to the Tropical Zone!
Hi! Glad you could stop by my homepage!.
I am a singer-songwriter playing what is known as Tropical Rock music in the style of Jimmy Buffett. I am the only
Jimmy Buffett tribute show in Washington State and I perform all over the great Pacific Northwest where I have lived all
I spend my spare time fishing for the elusive salmon, photography, sailing on my Catalina 25, gardening and writing music... and of course, performing that music.
I am also an active member of the Key NW Parrot Heads in Portland, OR which is an officially chartered chapter
of the national Parrot Heads in Paradise organization (see links below).
I am available for clubs, bars, restaurants, house concerts, private parties, weddings and corporate events.

I am a strong supporter of the effort to free Lolita, the Orca whale captured in the NW over 40 years ago.
For information on Lolita's plight and how you can help, please visit:
THIS could be the year we're going to bring her home to her family where she belongs
Here's a song I wrote along with a slide show about the day she returns to the Salish Sea
