I am “The Working Class Superhero”, and I'm not afraid to say what I feel, both in my songwriting and in my life. I'm a political, social, and environmental activist; I've participated in beach cleanups, breast cancer research fundraisers, war protests, civil rights demonstrations, and animal rescue events. I even once organized a rally at my Congresswoman's office because no one else would volunteer to do it.
The Heroes Against Hunger Concerts were started when I discovered the San Diego Food Bank after an underattended party left so much food uneaten that I simply couldn't bear to throw it away. Since then, Heroes Against Hunger has raised over a thousand dollars and five hundred pounds of food for the Food Bank, a fact that I am very proud of and very humbled by.
In addition to being the singer/songwriter for the band, I am a writer, a photographer, and a solo artist, often partnering with my dear friend and fellow singer/songwriter Allison Lonsdale to do shows. Most of all, I am a lover of life, and I hope that my music conveys that love to everyone who listens.

The Geeky Music Show!
|Saturday, December 21st, 2013 6:00 PM|
3343 Adams Avenue
San Diego, CA 92116
Price: FREE (just buy coffee)
It's the monthly Geeky Music Show! Once again, Allison Lonsdale and I will perform wonderful geeky music for you and all our friends at Lestat's West. We're also both working on new material (again, in my case, and still, in hers), so we'll probably have new songs to sing for you!
Lestat's West is the performance venue next door to Lestat's Coffeehouse on Adams Avenue in Normal Heights (the most inappropriately named neighborhood in history!). Recently, parking has become a bit problematic, but according to the inestimable Louis (soundman extraordinaire), there's usually more space north of Adams than south of it. So come on over, have some coffee or tea or ginger ale or craft soda or whatever, buy a cookie or a quiche or a sandwich, and come have a rollicking good time with us!
