    Charlottesville, VA now (musically, maybe best known as the launching point of Dave Matthews); later this year I'm moving to Seattle!

    Hey all,

    I'm from a beautiful piece of paradise in Australia called Mooloolaba, situated about an hour's drive north from Queensland's captial city, Brisbane. ( for pics). American friends who have visited here say it reminds them of a mix of Hawaii and California's beaches and lifestyle, really laid back and easy going, full of friendly people.

    Not your typical 'throw another shrimp on the barbie' type of place (however, the Irwin's at Australia Zoo are only 30mins drive from here, so we do get the occasional reason to say crikey, but it is usually associated with looking at nice looking ladies on the beach, not crocodiles).

    We have a rich music scene here on the coast with lots of local bands, plenty of 'taverns' to gig in, a few large live venues. The annual events like Big Day Out and Splendor in the Grass happen only 45mins away, and are big enough to draw major international bands.

    Come visit one day, you probably won't want to leave.. and most don't! I couldn't imagine living anywhere else.

    Denver, Colorado.
    Beautiful mountains and rolling plains, but one ugly city. Too close to Kansas, Wyoming, and Utah, so the wind never stops. What ain't suckin' is blowin'.

    I'm from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, where I moved to a little shy of 2 years ago from Hobart, Tasmania, Australia (Tassy was where I was born and raised.) Tassy was always too small for me, just wish I'd realised it earlier, but a new love helped me realise it and here I am, playing bass for one of Melbourne's best cover bands, TSix.

    In Tassy, I played bass for sixties underground band, The Breed, and "beatle band", The Fabs. Pryor to that I played in various covers and originals bands from 1979 onwards. I make my own music in my home studio, mostly composing originals and recording them.
