I am trying to get in touch with your older brother, Paul. We were Friends in Armonk and lost touch. My mom was your first grade teacher ,at Wampus School.

I have really enjoyed watching Peter in the OC. Then finding out the man has a voice? It is just awesome. I am in search of the 7 Days in Memphis CD. Look forward to seeing some more of his work.
