I received a Bachelor’s of Music with a concentration in Jazz Guitar Performance from Temple University in 2008. Although my focus was on Jazz, I also play and teach many other styles of music including Rock, Blues, Folk, Classical and Funk. Aside from teaching lessons and performing with various projects along the east coast, I also compose music for films and produce/record other musicians and bands.
Because of my background as a performer, composer, producer and educator, I feel that I have unique qualifications to give the student a well-rounded understanding of not just the guitar, but of music as a whole. By including a balanced mix of technique, performance, composition and theory, I hope to help students reach their full creative potential and to see music as not only a performance art, but as a mode of individual expression.

I started taking music very seriously in middle school when I began guitar lessons at a local music shop. I was inspired at the time to learn all of my favorite Beatles songs as well as the punk music I was totally obsessed with. At the time I was fortunate enough to have been learning from a college educated musician Dr. Mark Cook, director of Composition and Music Theory at Shepherd University and Gerry Kunkel, Guitar chair at Maryland University. My passion for music grew exponentially from this point on and I spent the next years playing in as many ensembles as possible in school as well as my own bands with friends, a chance for me to work on my own compositions. As my drive for music increased I began taking lessons for other instruments including piano, trombone, and voice. This constant practice and dedication to the study of theory eventually resulted in my acceptance to the University of the Arts in Philadelphia to study jazz guitar performance.
At UArts my exposure to music and new musical practices was what kept me constantly working to better myself as a player and composer. I was able to study with many great theorists and performers in both the jazz and classical style including Scott McGill, Tom Giacobetti, Matt Davis. In my spare time in Philadelphia I work on performing my own songs and getting a feel for the music scene in the city. I play with a number of rock groups and folk and through networking found session work as a guitarist, pianist, and vocalist in various studios in Philadelphia. Currently I am playing with the Philadelphia bands Ape School and The Extraordinaires, When I'm not teaching or performing I record at home or do session work for different projects in Philadelphia studios.

I've been playing guitar since I was 9. I'm from Washington, DC originally and have been based in Philadelphia since 2010. Living in such eclectic cities has introduced me to a wide variety of musical styles and has taught me to appreciate them all.

I'm still currently enrolled at Temple finishing up a degree in Music Education with Jazz Studies.
