My Bio: Played professionally since 1983 in the Ontario / Quebec Canadian bar circuit. Played in a Deep Purple tribute band including Rainbow / Whitesnake in ‘87 / ‘88 touring through Eastern & Southern Ontario that morphed into classic rock cover bands through the 90's with various line ups of the same members.

Moved to San Diego in '98 and after a 3 year hiatus, got back into rehearsing weekly to whatever CD's I felt like that night to expand the repertoire - Any music.....

Worked on original projects for a few years with some home studio recording.

Joined the So-Cal tribute scene in 2015 to present...
