I developed an eclectic taste in music at an early age. My history as a music lover begins with the song "I Want to Hold Your Hand" playing on the neighbor's radio. My father sang me songs like "Alexanders Ragtime Band" - and my cowboy Uncle introduced me to Johnny Cash. Growing up in Seattle in the 60's and 70's meant listening to rock on KJR and buying R&B 45's at Woolworths. When the film "Lady Sings the Blues" came out I was introduced to the world of jazz.
I started playing guitar at the age of 8 and switched to bass at 14. I have played for love and played for money -- and on occasion been lucky enough to play for both.
Currently I am a Professor teaching organizational behavior and organization change and development. I still play bass - and have recently started playing percussion.
