At the core of all I do, is the written word. From songwriting to a book about the NFL, I have a thing for telling stories. It’s taken me a while to pull together a site that doesn’t seem all over the place. I have music on one end and sports on the other. My musical career spans 20 some odd years in Austin, TX (and surrounding areas) and I’ve performed and recorded with some incredible artists like Kim Deschamps (Cowboy Junkies), Mark Andes (Spirit, Heart), Gregg Rolie (Santana, Journey), Barbara K (Timbuk 3). I’ve written hundreds of songs and co-written with Derek Holt (Climax Blues Band) and W.C. Clark (co-writer of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s “Cold Shot).
On the other end of the field is a labor of love that took 3 years to write, The Game Before the Money, Voices of the Men Who Built the NFL. It was published in 2014 by University of Nebraska Press and I’ve had some pretty cool opportunities along the way. Not to mention interviewing icons and legends of the game. I’ll be teaching a class for the second time at the University of Texas, Austin’s continuing ed program and hosting a radio show this fall.
I live in New Braunfels with my wife Lisa and our awesome dog, Indy.
