I am a passionate follower of the Beautiful Game and a lifelong, long-suffering supporter of Sheffield Wednesday Football Club, currently playing in EFL League One; you can read my testimony here. In Italy's Serie A, I support AS Roma.
I am a lover and performer of prewar Delta Blues, alternative Americana and global roots music. Here in Toronto, I play guitar in the indie folk/alt-country band Chapel of Ease, and perform in blues venues around town. During my years in Chicago, I played in the alt-blues band Revelator, featuring the legendary Bethany Thomas; a few tracks and photos may still be available on our old MySpace page. In DC, I was the lead guitarist for local honky-tonk heroes the Highballers, and in Morgantown I played in the blues trio Arthurs Mashburn Valentine.
