Recent photos of my performances:

Here's a picture of me at the Little Chapel of the Roses at Glen Abbey.  Isn't it a pretty chapel?

I did a wedding at Zosa Ranch, up near Temecula.  The photographer   Tony Eisenhower Photography took some pictures of me:


Well, at least I seem to be enjoying the music!

Here's a view of me and my pipes from the side, showing off the plaid and drones ribbons.


On St. Patrick's Day, I worked with some dancers from the Highland Fusion dance troupe (  Looking at us, you'd never know it was cold, wet, and raining just a few feet away!

Above is a picture of me in the Border Patrol kilt. It's not as flashy as the red Royal Stewart kilt, but it's elegant!


Binns Photography took pictures for an engagement I did at La Costa Spa and Resort, for the Petco Foundation.  We played for the golf teams as they finished their rounds and posed for photos with the players afterwards.

In June 2003, I helped publicize the San Diego Highland Games with live appearances on KFMB (channel 8) and KNSD (channel 7/39).


With the 2002 PM Angus MacDonald Memorial Western Regional Championship overall trophy - that's my name on it!

Because I often play for Irish folks, I decided to get a green Kilkenny jacket and vest:

KIlkenny jacket

I think it goes nicely with the red Royal Stewart kilt, and seems more Irish.

Sometime folks wonder why I show up so early before an engagement. Well, yes, I am conscientious and like to show well in time to play for folks - but also, I have to be sure and get all the white dog hair off my black Prince Charlie jacket and vest!

Above are our two Samoyed dogs - Dora, on the left (6 years) and Delta on the right (10 years). We love them lots (and hopefully, vice-versa!).

Often, when a customer wants to meet to hear the pipes and talk to me in person, I'll ask to meet at the far end of the San Diego Zoo's parking lot: it's pretty central and usually uncrowded. I decided to put up a picture to make it more clear where to meet me, after we've arranged a date and time:
