Interests and More Things About Me

I lived on the Gulf of Mexico, Florida for eight years and still hold a US.Green Card. I had two top 40 pop hits in the 90s for PWL Records and have appeared on over 50 compilation albums worldwide. I'm a long time member of the Performing Rights Society. I like to build websites and am something of a Wordpress expert. The writer of 'Father Ted' follows me on Twitter.
