Who or what inspires you?
I get inspired when you get that “Sizzle” feeling when a melody dances on top of music or a harmony gives you chills. That is the drug of sound that I’ve chased since I first experienced it.
Why do you love Radio Venice?

Favorite instrument …
My 73 Martin D18. It was my father’s (who passed) guitar that he used every Sunday to lead worship at church. It’s not very pretty and falling apart but I love how it sounds.
… and does it have a name?
It’s the only guitar I have without a name, probably because it was my Dad’s before me so it didn’t feel like it was mine to name. I don’t even know if the guitar is a “She”.
