Hoot was born and raised in Terre Haute, Indiana. Lived and worked in Fort Wayne IN, Jacksonville FL, West Palm Beach FL, Seattle WA, Los Angeles CA and here in Tulsa. He considers himself someone who can associate with the best of aristocrats or sit around the pickle barrel and talk about last week’s strawberry harvest with your uncle in Stilwell, OK. He’s never met a stranger. (He got that from his dad.) Hoot enjoys the finer things in life, but also appreciate the simple routines that make life so rich. He loves to perform music on stage, make people laugh and laugh at people. (He got that from his mom.) He’s athletic and try to keep in shape. Hoot likea to get his hands dirty. Hoot has a very sensitive nose, loves the smell of decaying leaves on the forest floor, Gain detergent, an ocean shore, a striking match, coffee brewing, fresh cut grass, an elegant perfume, burning sage, the smell of a baby's head. Awwwww!
