Oh, wait a minute.
That was some other Indian fighter.
Actually, I was born in Laconia, NH, the second of seven
children, and I now live in Waterville Valley, NH, with my
daughter, Lea, and my son, Lenny.
I've led a pretty eclectic life. After high school, I went
to Vienna, Austria, and studied piano (not very hard.) Then
I came home and went to Emerson College in Boston for a while
(not very long.). My next stop was at the Navy Music School
in Little Creek, VA, and not one Viet Cong came near us the
entire time I was there (at least not very close.)
Following the Navy, I ended up skiing in Waterville Valley,
and started to play professionally for a few years, before
leaving for California to be a studio musician. Instead, I
ended up doing special effects in movies such as The Buddy
Holly Story, Harper Valley PTA, Up in Smoke with Cheech and
Chong, and others. My favorite was The Muppet Movie, where
I worked under the guidance of half-man, half-genius Robbie
Knott (company name Knott Limited - get it?), and with Kermit,
Fozzie, and my dear friend Miss Piggy. After 5 years of smog
and traffic jams, I returned to New Hampshire, to the mountains,
clean air, and Waterville Valley.
I've put out four albums. The two on this website are my
latest. I hope you enjoy them, and will drop me a line in
the guest book to let me know.
