ABOUT

I have been playing music seriously for the past 12 years. My love for guitar started with metal but later moved on to other genres of music such as blues, jazz, jazz/fusion etc. I am open to all styles of music and listen to quite a bit of everything. I was raised in San Francisco and grew up listening to Tupac, the Eagles, Iron Maiden, Santana, and Middle Eastern music. Chances are if you need guitar work for any genre I'll be open to playing it if I have the knowledge of how to do so (I love country guitar but unfortunately do not have the technical knowledge of the great finger pickers like Chet Atkins or Danny Gatton etc.)

Influences

I was taught guitar by both Chris Broderick (of Megadeth, Nevermore, Jag Panzer) and Steve Smyth (Forbidden, Nevermore, Testament) so needless to say they are some of my greatest influences. By genre some of my other influences are:

Jazz fusion: Guthrie Govan, Shawn Lane, Brett Garsed, John McLaughlin, Al Di Meola... the list goes on and on

Jazz: Joe Pass, Wes Montgomery, John McLaughlin (again), Bireli Lagrene, Django Reinhardt

Metal: Chris Broderick, Steve Smyth, Jeff Loomis, Yngwie Malmsteen, John Petrucci, Dave Mustaine, Paul Gilbert... and many others

There are many others in many other genres but I think you get the picture, chances are if you play guitar I like you! I haven't even mentioned country, blues, classical, flamenco etc. There are just too many great musicians out there!
