On Tuesday October 18th I am going to be performing my music and manning my own booth at the Fun n Fit Disability Resource Fair in Kenosha, WI. I’ll be sharing with the folks at the fair how I adapted and learned to play guitar, insights into my songwriting, and more.
Here is a clip from a news article about the fair:
The third annual Fun ‘N Fit Disability Resource Fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 20, at the Kenosha YMCA, 7101 53rd St. There is no admission fee.
The 2009 National Champion UW Whitewater Warhawks Wheelchair Basketball team will perform from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be a Zumba demonstration at 2:30 p.m. as well as Silver Sneakers, Rock Climbing, Yoga and chair massages provided by the YMCA. Jeff LaDow, a best-selling mouth painter in the United States, will demonstrate his ability to paint pictures using his mouth to hold the brush. There will be interactive exhibits with adaptive sports and fitness equipment to try out. A raffle will be held and food will be sold.
Free transportation is available from the Kenosha Achievement Center by calling (262) 658-9093.
At the end of August 2011, I decided to take a risk and invest in my own home recording studio. I spent September buried in tracking, mixing, and mastering books and learning the ins and out of the equipment I’d purchased.
I had a collection of songs that I was working on and was really loving but couldn’t find a fitting place for them in my future recording and full-length album plans. “Yours and Mine” is the result.
This is the first collection of recordings that I’ve ever done on my own. They were recorded in my apartment, in Wauwatosa, WI, with three microphones and a computer. I truly hope that you enjoy the result.

Lesleigh and I just returned home from a week in Oklahoma. Several months ago, we were contaced by some folks who were putting together a benefit concert/a day to honor a veteran named Rusty Dunagan who lost three limbs in the war and just recently returned home.

It was a very powerful day and we are proud to have been a part of it!
