Throughout the year he travels from coast to coast, intermixing fun with shows, fishing the waters of Montana, Alaska and the southeast US, camping and hiking, he enjoys tinkering with his vintage classic vehicles, motorcycling, and working in his garden/yard where he has an expansive variety of flowers and vegetables.
Cooking comes second nature, and most of his recipes will include vegetables and herbs from his garden. On any given day, no matter where he is staying, those around him will experience the fine aromas of some new recipe he has put together. It is through living the life God would want us to live to the fullest that brings on his inspiration to write and play music. New music flows with ease as he remembers his experiences.
