Bio

I began playing flute in grade school 100 years ago. It wasn't easy being the only boy playing flute then.  I became interested in jazz in high school so I learned sax and played in the high school jazz band.  After High school I played full time in a rock band for four years, some original, mostly cover.  Suddenly I found out I had to get a real job. Took a few years off (a lot of years), enlisted in the Navy, med school, great marriage and kids.  Landed myself and family in NW Wisconsin where I rediscovered music, and found out that jazz musicians are an endangered species here. So, I ended up playing with midi background tracks.  I found Kompoz and it's been a Godsend.
