I was born on February 21, 1945 in Dodge City, Kansas, I graduated with a BA in History from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches in 1966.

I arrived in Austin, Texas in the spring of 1970. I was one of the very lucky individuals that spent that wonderful decade in that incandescently wonderful city. This is also where and when I began to practice my art. Looking up Jim Franklin at Armadillo World Headquarters, I was given my first poster assignment, John Sebastian. From that spring until New Year’s Eve, 1979, I executed over a dozen AWHQ titles. I also did work for Castle Creek, Soap Creek Saloon, The Texas Opry House, The Austin Opera House, and many other Austin music venues. In 1976, I also began work for Antone’s, Austin’s Home of the Blues.

It is probably for my work at Antone’s, 1976 – 2005, for which I am best known in music art and ephemera. Clifford Antone created the best blues club in the world in the last quarter of the 20th Century and it was my great and enduring honor to have been a part of that. I had the privilege of meeting and promoting some of the greats of the Chicago blues scene – Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, B. B. King, Albert King, Albert Collins, Buddy Guy and James Cotton – just to name a few. It was also my great honor to hear and promote the blues from such young Texas artists like Jimmie Vaughan, Derek O’Brien, Denny Freeman, Paul Ray and Stevie Ray Vaughan – again, just to name a few.

Other musicians that I have had the honor of promoting include – but are not limited to – Willie Nelson, Jerry Jeff Walker, Ray Charles, Warren Zevon, and Eric Clapton.
