I'm a professional-level harmonica player who's played at the Grand Old Opry in Nashville, performed with Grammy-Winner Dave Alvin, performed in the orchestra for the opera The Grapes of Wrath and recorded and played in numerous acclaimed bands and ensembles based in Chicago and beyond.
I also host Harmonicast, a podcast featuring interviews with the best performers on the instrument music today.
And, I'm an ordained Dharma Teacher with the Buddhist Society for Compassionate Wisdom, a North American Buddhist Order from the Korean Zen tradition dedicated to spreading Buddhist teachings to the West.
