I started singing in public at the age of 8 and took my first guitar lesson at age 10. I started out to make a career in music but somehow got sidetracked into electrical engineering. I spent the last 33 years at Western Kentucky University teaching electronics and designing equipment for research. Music remained a hobby for all those years. I am now retired from WKU. In 1992 I started seriously writing songs and studying books to improve my work. I am now writing approximately 20 songs a year. They seem to be either humorous or about love. I perform them on local cable public access TV but I am looking for a larger audience. "Rich and famous" is a far away dream. I just want some people to hear my songs and enjoy them.
