Started playing guitar and piano at 5 years old. Started my first band and played out at 13. Started playing small circuit gigs at 15. Started recording in studios at 16. Started writing original material at 14. Played small to medium size venues throughout the late 80's and early 90's. Left the live scene in 93' to continue writing primarily on my own. Have amassed a large catalog of original material. I practice, study, and teach music continually, particularly to my children. I am inspired by classical, jazz, and blues - in that order. Studied music both privately, and at the college level. All recording is done in our basement home studio. Also an avid guitar collector.
