ABOUT

I am a guitarist and songwriter, originally from New Jersey. I spent 10 years living in Nashville TN where I co-founded the band Naked Beggars with singer Inga Brittingham. I had the privilege of also playing alongside Eric Brittingham and Jeff LaBar of Cinderella. We wrote and recorded 3 albums, and toured for about 5-6 years. In 2009, we went on a long term hiatus. Shortly afterwards, I relocated to Southern Wisconsin.

In 2011, I joined a Milwaukee based cover/tribute band as a guitarist/keyboardist utility player.

In 2013, I joined a 2nd cover band as their guitarist. We play all different styles from Classic rock, Hard Rock, Alt Rock, Pop Music, and Funk...from the 70's to the 00's.
