An avid ukulele player, I have contributed to a dozen or more articles related to the instrument, gotten a number created, and plan on providing many more! I have had the honor of meeting, listening, and learning from some of the top ukulele players in the world and have studied the history carefully. I have created a book called Unlock Your Ukulele that shares seven years worth of workshops and reading into a handy reference for the ukulele player. You can see more of it at The Ukulele Dude.

I consider myself a jack-of-all trades and master of some.

I have a very large collection of memorabilia regarding Gladys Swarthout, a distant relative, and my online biography of her is the primary reference for the material in her article here on Wikipedia. I also maintain a website on the Swarthout family with history and genealogical information.
