Born and raised in New Orleans - Painter, sculptor, musician all my life - College education: architecture. Toured the world with a band called The New Christy Minstrels - had 5 hit records - played the London Palladium for the Queen, and White House for the President. Owned and ran a billboard company for a dozen years, servicing all the major record labels up and down the Sunset Strip & all over L.A. Am proud member of all-original New Orleans-flavored funky rock and roll band Catahoula - members include some of the finest musicians on the planet - proud recipients of recent record deal - after just being named one of the top 100 unsigned bands in the USA in Music Connection.
Am the luckiest & most blessed man on earth, having met and fallen in love with my beautiful wife, Pamela Clay, incredible actress and unbelievable singer (& she’s in the band!), and being the father of precious and astounding mega-talent Jesse Rowden. Worked ten years as artist and sculptor for Hollywood special effects companies (Cinnabar, JetSets, Flix FX, etc….), and Hollywood studios (Paramount, Universal, Warner Brothers, DreamWorks, etc…) & am now pursuing my art and sculpture under mentor Tony Clark. God bless us all!
