I grew up in Amherst, a college town in western Massachusetts. I earned a degree in astronomy from Amherst College, discovered that this was of doubtful remunerative value, and wound up writing software for a living. In the process I attended my first filksing at Boskone in 1985; in my later twenties I learned to play the guitar, courtesy of a roommate with a guitar and _Rise Up Singing_. I spent five years in exile in Texas for employment reasons, hanging out in my spare time with folk and filk musicians and playing in Irish sessions. I came back to New England in 1996 and drifted into the orbit of MASSFILC--that's how I met my wife, Robin Holly. I write a song every two or three years as the spirit moves me. Nowadays I live in Nashua, NH with Robin, our 4000+ books, a lot of model trains, and the cutest cat in the entire world.
