ABOUT

I am mainly a guitar player, but can sing a little. I was in a band in college and played out quite a bit. I am now a middle aged family man, lol, but would like to have some music friends to jam and hang out with.

Other helpful things to know is that I am a Christian and do have to consider lyrical content, but love hanging out with ALL musicians, regardless of religion. Also, I like all forms of metal, but prefer more melodic vs aggressive vocals. I lean more towards thrash, progressive, power, symphonic, and groove metal, but also love blues, soul, and classic rock.
