ABOUT

I'm open to starting or joining a variety of different types of projects.

I have almost 25 years of playing, and 15 years of gigging/touring, and teaching. I delve into any project with which I am involved whole heartedly, and I have always tried to push myself to be a guitarist that sits right in a band, fitting into the role that is needed.

I am interested in in-person or online collaborations depending on the situation. I recently recorded guitar for track #s 2-10 of Asphalt Valentine's new album "Twisted Road". I play in a full time cover band called Superbad (pre covid) which was every weekend. Gigs likely aren't coming back soon, and I want to make music!

Please note that I was never a member of the Atlanta-Based tribute band Departure (with whom I appear in some of my live videos). I simply filled in on guitar for them a couple of times. Only the footage of me on my own YouTube page features me on guitar, and not any other Departure footage.
