You may contact me at the above email, postal address or phone number. As you can see from my experience, I have built my reputation upon highly professional work with tough and demanding issues of the day. My goals were influenced by my father who taught me the danger of creating dependency. And today, the driving vision of my work is captured in the saying, 'you can catch a person a fish and they eat for a day, but TEACH a person HOW to fish and they eat for a lifetime!!!

I also have a Native American Music business on the internet, if you would like to visit there, click here.
