Dodging My Own Bullets is a fast read. Many people that have liked it commented on its un-politically correct tone and fast pace and commented they appreciated the fact that it wasn't the normal "whiny ass, Why Me?" "Then AA saved my life" - crap - kind of addiction to rehab story. Honestly - I just don't have the patience, and I have the attention span of a Malamute!

Background Information

   I became a Heavy Metal musician at an early age for the love of Rock N' Roll, THEN for the women, which has always gotten me into massive amounts of trouble. I've always had this irresistable attraction to psychologically unstable women!

  They are like a box o' Chocolates - You never know what you're gonna get!

  Sometimes Cherries.... sometimes Nuts........

  When you have a pure love for gut-grinding, gritty guitars - then add equal parts absolute addiction to attractive, aero-naughty Angels of the Aisles - you not only feel indestructable, but care even less about the consequences. 

   You know the old saying - "If you remember the 1980's - You weren't really there!!!".

   Eventually, the bands became too much of a hassle, but chasing women in the same ol' haunts still remained the favorite pastime.  Old habits die hard - even harder with a drunken monkey swinging from your neck.

   The bullets I dodged before I gave up alcohol were trivial compared to the bullets I've been dodging since..............



Birth Place
Cuyahoga falls, OH usa

I have been happily married for the THIRD time (that I can remember anyway! :-), quietly raising a pack of Malamutes for the past 10 years and completely sober for 8 years.

Additional Information

Recently began fostering dogs and volunteering for the local Humane Society. It has turned into a very rewarding tribute to the memory of our first male Malamute, Nikolai(above photo)after he passed away from liver disease. How ironic that my best friend helped me cope with staying sober and handle my own liver disease and then would die of the very same disease. By the time we found out it was far too late to help him, and that is my one and only greatest regret of all time...... Rest in Peace my BOY - until we meet again!
