Jack taught for thirteen years at University Child Development School before becoming a Stay-at-Home-Dad (aka "LIVING THE DREAM!") to his two young kids. He started music lessons at an early age, bouncing from cello to piano to trombone, before settling into a 9-year membership in Seattle's Northwest Boychoir. Jack studied Creative Writing and Top Ramen consumption at University of Washington. The day after finishing his novel (which was mostly about writing a novel), he bought his first bass and promptly joined his first band with the belief that the best way to become a better musician would be to play music with people far more talented than he was. The gamble paid off bigtime. Jack's also an On-Air personality on SiriusXM's Kids Place Live where his daily kid call-in show "Live From the Monkey House" blends kid-centric ideas, hysterical daily themes and high energy music for the whole family. Jack lives in Seattle with his wife, son, daughter and cat.
