I spent 15 years traveling the world as a yacht captain. The songs written and recorded in my albums are all inspired by those adventurous journeys. Now older and semi-retired, I now reside in the Philippines making my home on the #1 ranked island in the world, Palawan. I perform regularly at the Palo Alto resort, and Gipsy Lair Cafe in Puerto Princesa, as well as occasional performances in Metro Manila where I have been featured on the national TV show, the Ryzza Mae Show.
I printed dozens of t-shirts to sell in the Philippines with my motto: Music, Passion, Duende. Duende is a gypsy word meaning when the music captivates your soul.
It wasn't till after i sold all my t-shirts that I discovered that the word "Duende" in the Philippine dialect of Tagalog means "midget".
To this day nobody who bought a t-shirt ever said a word, and I can only imagine what they must think of my motto, "Music, Passion... uh... short people"???
