For the longest time I was working for engineering firms as a designer of mostly plumbing systems, eventually becoming a building Commisssioning Authority, or CxA. Through all that I was always working on music- writing songs, recording, playing guitar. At this point I've been laid off (permanently it seems), disabled and effectively retired. I am continuing my work with the music and expanding the effort since I have the time. I am also now working with my daughter helping her to get a singing/ writing career off the ground. I count my friends as prized possessions and am always open to making new ones, as it enriches both our lives.
