Teaching since:
1995

I started playing guitar at age 11 (41 as of this writing) and was active on stage as an actor before that, so I've been a performer my whole life. I've played original music in many genres, cover bands in multiple genres and even play in a tribute band. I started off pursuing technical ability and followed the popular "shred" guitar players. I then discovered "slower" blues players and brought more dynamics into my playing. I've taken a turn towards songwriting and music production and produce songs for myself and other clients. I truly love all types of music, whether rock, blues, jazz, funk, soul, heavy metal, classical, flamenco, world music, EDM, old-school country, musical-theater, etc. I love it all. There's a special place in my heart for Latin-jazz and heavy metal - for the raw passion of it - and EDM and funk, for the dance-ability of it. Because in the end, we all want to move our bodies to music!

This was a very long time ago. I listed it simply to illustrate my ongoing involvement to be around music and the industry. I worked in sales, but learned a bit about building and built several project guitars while there. As a result I do all my own tech-work on my guitars. I can help you with yours as well.
