Biography

I grew up in San Francisco and started music lessons when I was 12. In my early teens picked up the guitar and taught myself to play. I moved to LA in my early twenties and worked with many artsists including Earth Wind and Fire and Willie Nelson among others. In 1995 I produced my first CD. I started playing solo Guitar in book stores and at Art shows to help expose my music to a wider audience. At this time my solo Guitar style began to emerge. In 2000 I relocated to Detroit and began performing as a soloist full time. I have been performing 3-4 nights a week and in the last 12 years have recorded 8 CDS. I play Taylor and Wechter acoustic guitars and I use crate Amps. Favorite players would be JohnWilliams, Steve Howe, Jeff Beck, Tommy Emmanuel, and Jimmy Page .
