ABOUT

I've been a musician for over 35 years. While a singer/songwriter for the last 15 years.
I enjoy being a lead guitar for hire for bands in need. I can hit the ground running. I'm currently playing guitar and singing with Philadelphia area classic rockers, Minds Eye View. I've played in Philly area bands Dangerous Rhythm, Saucy Jack, The Rafters and The Attic Dwellers. I also spent some time writing and playing country music with talented singer/songwriter and Nashville recording artist Gina Miller.

I started writing my own songs and put together a small home studio. The majority of my own music is acoustic guitar based and vocals. I was strongly influenced by the singer/songwriters of the 70's.

I also play bass, drums/percussion and play all the instruments on my recordings.

I truly enjoy improvisational playing, meeting other musicians and jamming as often as possible.

Not actively looking to form a new band. More to just have some new musical experiences, help another artist out, maybe collaborate on some music and see what happens from there.

I always play from the heart.
