ABOUT

About me.....

Born in the Philippine islands, I came to the US when I was 10 years of age. Showing a great affinity for the arts, I found a focus in music through guitar. My early influences include musicians such as Jimi Hendrix, Jason Becker, Tony MacAlpine, and rock bands such as Soundgarden, Alice in Chains and Metallica. I have been an active musician throughout the Chicagoland area playing in bands ranging from blues to progressive metal. Primarily a lead guitarist with equal rhythm capabilities, I was told that I have impressed both audience and critics with diverse, energetic and intelligent songwriting.
