ABOUT

Software engineer by day and guitarist and occasionally bassist with an eclectic set of influences and styles at night. I hate writing paragraphs, so I'll list...

Fingerstyle acoustic or electric.
Picked acoustic or electric.
Low to medium-high gain electric guitar tones.
Mostly rhythm with some lead.
Passable classical guitar noodling.
Likes authentic music (imperfect, raw, candid).
Addicted to tremolo and vibrato effects.
Probably should not sing around other humans... ever...

I've been a part of cover groups as well as involved in writing originals. Currently involved recording guitar and bass parts for an album of original music.
