I am a guitarist with a B.A. in Music, Jazz Guitar Performance, from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I have extensive experience as a performer in jazz, large and small ensembles, as both a leader and a sideman, including work with many Chicago jazz musicians. I've performed jazz standards, swing, bossa nova, fusion, flamenco standards, and nu-jazz at clubs, cafes, corporate events, art openings, restaurants, and fashion shows. I have also played in rock groups over the years, played some blues, and have some classical guitar experience.
