About Me

Singer Songwriter, Minnesota, USA

I have lived on a little piece of prairie for 33 years. I'm passionate and dedicated to writing songs with the hope of singing them for people. I will continue with both ends of that process. Create then hope. It's here I write songs, and here I wait to sing them for others.

Listen to (or purchase) songs on Bandcamp, Apple Music, Pandora, Spotify, Amazon Music; or reach out to me and I'll send you some music.

I recorded a group of songs in the summer of 2021, some written for my concerts with storyteller Kevin Kling. Find them on streaming services Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, Amazon Music and Pandora

And please come listen to (or purchase) the most comprehensive source of my songs at
Bandcamp or reach out to me and I'll send you some sound files or even an old school CD.


Finally, I have 29 years of songs written with kids in the classroom and at camps. I tried to archive everything. If that's what you might be looking for, I might have it.

When the Pandemic kept me from performing live, I took to performing live from our porch.

80 livestreams kept my head in the game. You can view all of them here.
