I’m originally from Newton, NJ but have lived most of my life in the San Francisco Bay Area – first in San Francisco, now the Fabulous East Bay.
I never quit my “day job” as a Data Architect, DBA or Data Engineer, but have always been a lover of the arts – Photography, Song Writing, Assemblage and Poetry / Limericks.
I play 6 and 12 string guitar, bass guitar, mandolin, lap steel, piano, violin, theremin and kalimba. In the 80’s I played in many dive bars around the San Francisco Bay Area, my favorite was The Hotel Utah.
My playground used to be SOMA (before it was ruined by the 90’s “dot con”. I practically lived at Cafe Soma, where I had black and white photography shows at many Cafes, like Cafe Soma, Brainwash and the Meat Market Cafe. When San Francisco was taken over by tech Ceo’s and tech, it became too much of a good thing and so I left and have been in the East Bay since 1994.
I was into Assemblage from about 2007 until 2017. I had a few shows, but these days I just do music and art for the fun of it.
I would love to meet other artists from around the world, and especially here in the San Francisco Bay Area, where we can perhaps meet at some place in Oakland, once this Pandemic leaves us..
