I am a tech educator, software developer, and composer based in Seattle. In a prior life, I was a music professor.
I am a doggy-daddy (x2) and a kitty-daddy (x3) and share a home in West Seattle with my wife Kimberly and our menagerie. Previously, I have lived in Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Montana, New York, and Tennessee.
I am not the “Sam Hamm” of Batman (1989 version) movie fame, though there have been mixups in the past with fans and also rights management entities. I once received a $1.29 royalty statement from ASCAP for his lyrical contributions to the film Monkeybone. Shunning wealth and fame, I returned the check and clarified the lyricist credit, although I really do wish I could say that I had written “The Whistling Booty Train Song”.
