Biography

I am a Fort Wayne native, born on Valentines Day of 1981 in what is now, a park (old Lutheran Hospital). I have been playing a combination of piano, drums, and various guitar forms since 5th grade.  I also run a small production studio out of my home.

My days consist of watching my girls (Madison - 3 years old and Dinah 6 years old), scolding our Dachshund named "Buddy" and running my business until the wee hours.

I have been an active part of the music community for almost a decade now, and continue to promote music via my efforts on this site and other like ventures while performing in a handful of local bands (Melbourne Drive and That Crafty Devil).

Please enjoy this site, as we continue to bring you as much local entertainment related content and resources!

Biography

From radio to restaurant and back to music. I have a passion for music, especially the local scene, after spending a year on the air with local alternative station 96.3 The Edge as 'Danger Boy' with Doug St.John in the afternoon I left to pursue my dream of owning a restaurant. Shortly after opening the restaurant I felt the need to be in touch with radio, local music, and everything I loved about this 'scene', but with long hours and early mornings it was tough to make it out to shows like I had in the past. A solution was brewing.

My other passion in life is computers and had recently had high speed DSL installed in my home. One night while working on some things in my office an interesting idea came to me...internet radio on a local level. I immediately began researching and digging on the web. A few hours later I had figured out some simple web hosting and using Shoutcast was able to stream a copy of a local CD that I had. The next steps and the ones that bring us here are reserving the name 'FortWayneMusic.com' from an online registrar and building a simple website that people could use to access my large collection of local music. Suddenly I was back in radio and loving every minute of it. Many years of hard work, outages, up and downs, months of stagnation, and many many staff members later...here we are.

This site is a vision. A resource, on a local level, for hardworking musicians that have entertained me countless times. A way to pay them back for everything they have given me. Enjoy...

Biography

I moved to Fort Wayne back in 1979 when I was three years old (so technically, it was my folks doing the moving, I had no choice in the matter).  I lived here through high school and am a proud River Rat.  After failing to make it through college at Valparaiso and IU, I moved back "home" to make something out of myself.

Lot of good that did!  I got into playing guitar and bounced around a couple different local bands.  My gigging career, shortlived at just under two years, ended when my bandmates/roommates all went their separate ways.  I chose a girl (that lasted another two years) and gave up my music career dreams.  They weren't very big anyways.

I have since settled down, finished my degree, married and am fathering a couple of great kids.  I'm not much into the local music scene these days, but the contacts I've made in the past are still friends.  My contributions to the FWM community now comes by way of chiming in on the message boards and doing what I can to write fun and useful technical articles.
