ABOUT

I'm best described as a late bloomer hobbyist. I come from a visual arts background but I have deeply enjoyed practicing and learning music of late. I would be thrilled to find some other beginners who would be willing to practice together to develop the skills of playing live in a group.

Influences

I have pretty eclectic taste. I listen to 60's and 70's punk including the Stooges and the Ramones. I get into contemporary indie bands that have a similar vibe. Cheap thrills from the 80's include Depeche Mode and similar electronic groups. I have always been a Jazz fan. Favorites include Coletrane and Miles Davis. Radiohead and other electronic influenced contemporary groups are also interesting to me. I get into a mood for ambient sounds from time to time. Brian Eno and those who followed after are favorites. I have dabbled a little in Spanish guitar including some flamenco and Brazilian music. So much more, so little time...

EQUIPMENT

Several electric guitars and various tube amps. Classical guitar. Small PA setup for practice. Drum machine. Programmable analog synth.
