Nexus - a central point of communication

This site is mainly about my music activities, but there are also some opinions and Computer related topics in here as well.

It is funny how people define themselves. Whether it is on the web or otherwise, there sure are a lot of 'identity based topics'. I suppose that the way I want to present myself on the web, and perhaps the least controversial definition, is that I spend most of my time these days in the software business. For over 20 years I have been a coder, developer, technical manager, architect, and CTO. But I also 'define' myself as a a musician, primarily a bass player, who also plays some guitar and composes on keyboard and computer. Here are some of the highlights of my career so far:

  • 4 Time Grammy Nominated Bass Player
  • Played on over 20 Commercially released Albums
  • Original bassist for The Dregs, Zazen, and The Mistakes
  • Developer, Manager, Entrepreneur, and Executive in the Software Development business for over 20 years.

The above bullets are for people who want to know these things. I am primarily known by musicians for my work as a bassist and founding member of the band 'The Dregs' a.k.a. The Dixie Dregs. Guitarist Steve Morse and I started our first band together when we met in high school. The Dregs were somewhat of a pioneering instrumental rock fusion group who toured and recorded a lot in the late 70's and early 80's, with less frequent forays into the 90's and the present.
