ABOUT

I began my trek on the never ending road of music at the age of 6 with the piano and by age 14 I switched over to the guitar. Since then I have had the great pleasure of studying a number of other stringed instruments such as the bouzouki, the baglama, the mandolin, the violin, the bass, and the puerto rican cuatro. Additionally I have studied a bit of the tenor sax and the trumpet. I can say with confidence that it is thanks to the time, energy, and love that I have poured into the guitar over the years that I am able to pick up and get a grasp of a variety of different instruments; it is my exposure to a number of other instruments and playing styles that affirms and grounds my connection to the guitar. As the modern father of classical guitar, Andres Segovia, once said "The guitar is a small orchestra. It is polyphonic. Every string is a different color, a different voice."

I have toured the country as a gigging musician, studio musician, and songwriter/composer - would love to collaborate!

In 2015 I graduated from Fordham University with a degree in Visual Arts & Music Composition - I have also had the great fortune of privately studying and building personal relationships with true masters of the guitar, such as Ric Molina, Virginia Luque, & Michael Daves.
