ABOUT

I've played guitar ever since my teenage years. Started with rock and blues and eventually migrated over to jazz. I did coursework in Jazz Studies at the University of North Texas, where I played in a few big bands. I've gigged around quite a bit playing swing and Latin jazz standards solo and in small groups, and I'd love to find like-minded musicians who'd like to play jazz in a duo or combo setting in and around Charlotte. I'm open to playing more modern and original jazz, not just standards.
