About ancientson
Quick facts:

What would you like to know????

I was born in the bay area of California, moved to Minnesota where I lived in Minneapolis for most of my life. I now live in Bothell, Washington, USA ,(outside of Seattle), with my beautiful wife who is a musician as well.

About me:

  • Been playing guitar for well over 25 years
  • Teaching for over 15 years
  • I am a vegetarian
  • I live, breathe, and eat music!
  • I love old school horror!
  • I also love B list movies like Sharknado!

    Yes, I do "lurk" if you will. I like to browse UG land and listen to others. Better than the radio. There is also some amazing stuff out there. So please, don't just lurk around...I am very relaxed and easy going. If you want to add me, shoot me an email or say hi that's awesome.

    Have an awesome day!
