This is the Wicky Pickers – an original swing-celt-klezgrass band I have played in since 2006. Here is one of my compositions.

“My personal interests include writing and performing music on guitar, mandolin and vox. I have found lecturing to be as exciting as performing music, and I combine the two by writing humorous altered popular song lyrics and playing them when lecturing. I am really enjoying seeing more of the world as my wife Kayle and I lecture and travel these last few years. In addition, I am finding a real passion for writing and leaving a written legacy comprised of the bits of useful medical innovation I have synthesized over my career.”
