There are places in the heart one finds only by SINGING!

I've sung my entire life; the family story is I sang before I talked.  I've sung by myself, in duos, trios and choirs of all varieties.  Singing I truly love, but singing harmony for me is nothing short of ethereal!  

In this picture my sister Kris and I are playing in downtown Seattle in the summer of ''64; we had been 

hired to play throughout the state of Washington for a candidate run- 

ning for governor. I was 16!  He lost, but we had a wonderful summer playing on street corners and cam- 

paign rallies in cities large and small.

In this picture I think I'm 10 and we're performing at our first gig in public. I'm the one in the pink crinoline! (I'm

concentrating, trying hard to play and sing at the same time.)

A few years later, we switched instruments and I took up guitar and my sister played upright bass.  

It was the 60's folk music boom and we relished being part of it, playing for any and all who would listen.

Our dad, a school and church choir director, was our teacher, coach, chauffeur...and biggest fan!

A number of yrs. ago I did an afternoon concert featuring songs I'd written. Several wonderful local musicians joined me that day for "The Crown Concert". (The crown referred to was not regal...but dental!) This photo is from that event.

Currently (and for the past several yrs.) I've been writing songs and 

recording them on an iPad using 

Garageband. I'm also slowly learning how to write out the arrangements of my music with the acclaimed Notion

music app. created by Presonus.

This "Music" page will eventually be home for all my songs.  I'm still in construction mode, but for now... here are a few songs to get started. Hope you enjoy :D!


I was born and raised in eastern Washington and moved to Canada to live and finish university. In September of 2017 I marked my arrival in this beautiful country nearly 50 yrs. ago....and this yr. is also Canada's 150th birthday! So I'm celebrating (both!) with a song. Here's my song for Canada!

 My youngest daughter spends most of the year on the road as a touring musician. And every now and then, after a long time without dropping anchor, she checks in. I wrote this song for her.
