I am a publisher by profession and a lifelong musician. I launched Acoustic Guitar magazine in 1990. I now enjoy the bonus of working closely with my two children, Lyzy and Joey. Due to a healthy lifestyle, a happy marriage, and a passion for my work, I have not aged physically since this picture was taken in 1975.
