born agana, guam jan. 16, 1959. began my musical "career" in high school, playing in various dance and show bands. sometime in the '80's began seriously documenting my own sound work. founded the bands: big joey, blowhole, city of worms, and began working solo under the name hands to. released far too many cassetttes cds and lps. founded the big body parts label which existed from 1984 to 1989. moved around the country, sometimes taking my bands with me. since 1997 or so, have been releasing work under my own name. i am most interested in listening, in what happens when we listen.
