Storytelling • Music • Family-style Entertainment

I’m an old-time musician and storyteller in the American Campfire tradition who tells stories and sings songs to audiences of all ages throughout San Diego County.

I play a colorful mix of sing-along songs, cowboy tunes and sea chanteys, I tell tall-tales, spooky ghost stories and lively heroic adventures to entertain the entire family.
