Music has always been a part of my life.

My father was a professional musician who attended the Peabody conservatory and received a Masters degree in music from the University of Miami. And I spent much of my formative years in and around the music business, both the performing and musical instruments side.

After not taking to music as a child, I found my way to music and rock and roll when I was around 13 or 14.

I’ve been playing guitar ever since.

I’ve played in a few bands and acoustic duos over the years and even did a year at the Berklee College of Music in Boston.

While I love rhythm guitar, I’ve played lead in every group I’ve ever been in. As a soloist, my primary influences are Jimmy Page, David Gilmour, Ritchie Blackmore, EVH, and Hendrix/Stevie Ray. The next level of influences are too numerous to list but include Neil Young, Steve Vai, Al Di Meola, Carlos Santana, and Hetfield/Hammet.

Throughout it all, I’ve created original songs and music and have, if not a catalog, then a least a decent backlog of original material that has yet to be recorded. Part of this website is dedicated to recording and distributing those songs.
