I began keeping bees in 2012 working for commercial migratory beekeepers in New York and South Carolina. It quickly became a passion and more than a job because it merged environmentalism, farming, science and traveling. I began bartering my employers a couple of days labor for beehives which I brought home to Pennsylvania and started keeping my own bees and raising local queen bees acclimated to our local environment. I was not keen on some of the practices of big commercial beekeeping outfits using antibiotics and pesticides to deal with the pests and pathogens so I began learning organic management techniques to keep healthy and productive bees on my own. I continued working off and on for a few different commercial outfits until I settled in managing Wild Mountain Apiaries in Cold Springs New York living half the year outside Utica NY and half in Manning South Carolina. I did that for 14 months until I decided to leave commercial beekeeping to come home and take a position working part time for PennState on honeybee research and begin to grow my own bee farm in Pennsylvania, GreenWay Apiaries and started my own bee club Organic Beekeepers of Pennsylvania. I produce honey, beeswax, pollen, propolis and queen bees. I have a teaching apiary at Stonehenge Gardens in Tamaqua and mentor new beekeepers.
I loose my self in the flow of music, at the same time expressing what I see and feel from the music, the audience and the energy of it all coming together. That is, in a nutshell, how I got where I am today, addicted to painting live music.
