I have been singing most of my life, and back in high school I was involved in choir and in the musicals they produced, and I did musicals in college as well as in community theater. I sang with a local rock band briefly while their regular lead singer was away, but that was more than a decade ago, before I moved to the area I live in now.

Currently karaoke is my only musical outlet, so I am very grateful for the entire SingSnap community. Thanks to everyone for listening!

Along with learning new songs, I'm constantly working to perfect my older recordings. But unless I need a fresh recording of a song for a contest, I only ever keep one version of any song public. When I am satisfied that I've improved on an older recording I delete the old one in favor of the new version.

Submitted for your approval... There are very few of my recordings I feel I could not improve on, given the ambition and the time to work on them. But, if I were to record these songs again, I think I could really only hope that they turned out as well as the renditions in this collection. Here are ten sings that I feel are polished enough to be termed "radio ready."

Oh, one more thing... That thing you see me puffing on all the time in the videos... thats a vaporizer. It's not some weird pipe or hookah or anything that uses tobacco. I quit smoking almost 5 years ago, and switched to vaping. About a year later, my voice started to... well... to bloom, actually... and it keeps getting better. I've never sung this well before in my life. I've added several steps to both my upper and lower registers, and I can transition between them more smoothly. I credit the vaping with allowing me to finally stop smoking so that could happen. So yeah, I kind of appointed myself an absolutely unofficial spokesman for the benefits of switching from smoking to vaping. And that is why you see me vaping in most of my videos.
