How did you get into the music business?

While in high school my first professional job was working in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., at a Hawaiian theme park called Porpoise Island.

What is your fondest musical memory?

There are too many to mention. Performing in Carnegie Hall with my own group, playing my original music,singing Hawaiian songs for my tutu for her 88th birthday,playing every Sunday at Unity Church.Whatever opens the hearts and minds and promotes raising the consciousness of humanity. It’s on my web-site.
