I am pretty simple guy who gave up the 9 to 5 lifestyle for freedom to ramble on. My mother signed me out of kindergarden to see Hank Williams Jr and David Allen Coe in concert and I never came back. My son was born the day Waylon died and begged the ex-wife to name him Waylon. Now, you know why she is an ex. I enjoy absorbing culture and having a big ole bowl of what ever is going around. Living in moments and enjoying the journey of life where ever it takes me is how I do it. I am open minded when it comes to music but hold songwriters who roll dice, crash on couches, risk everything, and live off the kindess of strangers dear to my heart. I feel like these are the purest forms of folks who know the true meaning of the word freedom. Anyone who does what they are passionate about from working at Long John Silvers to Painting Picturtes are a sucess in my book. I am also a hell of a dish washer.
