Bio - "Making Reading Cool Again"

After college I moved from Ohio to California on a bicycle, without a cell phone, credit card and only $600 and a guitar. Moment in the Sun is the book and soundtrack I wrote based on that adventure. Performing Songwriter reviewed it, claiming "Wholly On the Road re-imagined, the hints of philosophy are so transcendent, Moment in the Sun shines bright.”

I've since been touring in a 1970 VW Bus to spread the possibilities of a life without barriers. Palka 4 President is the documentary that has been filming my progress. A video of me unique live show of the VW Bus Tour can be viewed here. The documentary trailer, Frayed Blue Jeans Music Video, and journal podcasts can be viewed at

Down The Road is my first studio LP released this summer on my own independent label, Moniker Press.

Several European outlets have since requested advance copies, as well as independent and internet radio stations abroad. The album entered chart, debuting at #22.

My song Lazy Day will be featured in an Indie film by an Emmy Award winning director. I also have a small role in the film. My music will also be featured in an original web series right along an original score by a member of The Beach Boys.
