This site is still under construction (as it has been since 2006), so bear with some of the bugs in it (some of which may have been caused by upgrading this index page to HTML class standards). I'm a writer, song composer/producer, photographer, and media critic. Some of the ads here (sponsored by webs.com) help to keep this site free and available. Spammers not welcome since one of them did shut down the website for a few days. As of February 10, 2017, based again in Austin, Texas, although I reserve the right to move to my ancestral homeland of Ireland if I ever win the lottery or get an Irish work permit.
