He is a major music fan, and took his first rock artist pictures in the early 80s when the group 'til tuesday did an instore signing event at the record store where he worked. His art, music and photography, especially of musicians, is a labor of love. He has also written and played music since age 12, and finally released his first CD 32 years later. His newest one is tentatively scheduled for release by the end of 2005.
He is a West Virginia native who has resided in the Orlando, Florida area since 1984.

The name "babaziba" comes from a Three Stooges short in which Curly was pretending to be a
know-it-all swami called the Babaziba.
