ABOUT

I usually play acoustic guitar as an accompaniment to my original music, but I'm (a little)flexible! I don't play bar chords nor fancy riffs. I play / write what I hear in my head, and I can accompany with a few key chords.

Most of the songs I have written can be considered Folk Ballads though I do enjoy singing other genre and I've written and recorded several Christian songs since 1988.
