ABOUT

Hello! I'm an experienced guitarist/vocalist looking to meet some new players / join a band. I'm a graduate of Berklee, where I studied jazz, Brazilian and classical guitar styles (along with music biz in general - comes in handy with bookings). I've also been playing rock, blues, folk and metal for about 20 years now. I'm an avid songwriter and have a ton of ideas that I truly believe could take off with the right group of musicians. Ideally I'm looking to join or put together an experimental type of rock band, something that tries to push the envelope a bit while still being entertaining. That being said, I'm also open to other ideas as well - I'm also open to joining an already established band.


For a good sample of my guitar playing, check out "Hills Like These" below.
