I'm a dirtbag surfer, a semi-feral world travelin' nomad on a mission to nowhere. I'm a fighter not a lover, a not so gracefully aging early 80's punk rock survivor. I'm a 6'4" bottom dwelling nose riding oddity who loves carne asada burritos more than my own kin.
I like dune buggys, rat rods, bad girls, soul surfing, hard carving skateboarding, and loud obnoxious guitars with lots of reverb. I also dig hanging out with assorted rock and roll hooligans, misfits, outcasts, and degenerates.
I am especially a big fan of 60's punk, all forms of garage rock and surf trash - the more primal and primitive the better. That's how I get my groove on...
I don't like kooks, creeps, hipsters, gentrifiers, and uptight squares.
I do a little podcast called Rat Surf Radio...give it a listen, you're sure to dig it. I also play geetar in a band called the Dirtbag Surfers. You can check out our page here and on Facebook, if you're a fan of really bad surf trash garage punk, and a glutton for punishment.

Ya know what I mean?
