ABOUT

I have been playing guitar most of my life, but mostly classic rock. After college I toured in a hard rock band for a year prior to joining the Navy. Now that I am retired from the Navy I am back to playing every day and am working to become a blues musician. I am currently extremely blessed to be playing with an awesome band containing very talented musicians and we hope to be playing gigs very soon.
