I play both electric and acoustic guitars. I'm primarily a rock guitarist with heavy blues influences, although I am extremely versatile and can play many styles: pop, R&B, funk, disco, country, oldies, reggae, hard rock, metal, alternative.

My soloing style is often described as "very melodic", and my rhythm playing as "strong and groove oriented"

I've been a Las Vegas resident since 1990. I have a full-time day job in the computer technology field. I work daytime hours Monday thru Friday, Saturdays & Sundays off.

I'm a serious, hard-working musician, completely professional, and a dependable team player. I'm energetic on stage, have a good image and stage presence. Active lifestyle, non-smoker, no drugs, occasional alcohol.
