Influences

I'm a child of 80s shredders -- I grew up on Vai, Satch, Paul Gilbert. I love Eric Johnson and Nuno. I also love Rush, Queensryche, and Dream Theater. I have a pretty open spectrum of music taste, everything from Stevie Ray Vaughn to Meshuggah. My current playlist has a lot of Staind, Chevelle, Mastodon, A Perfect Circle, and Depeche Mode (don’t judge).

EQUIPMENT

Marshall Half Stack (with a MF350 head – yes I know they suck – I love mine). Pedaltrain board with numerous effects (nothing crazy, but it gets the job done). 15 guitars, mostly Ibanez. My mains are an Ibanez Universe (Sea foam Green), and an Ibanez RBM10 (Like Reb in Winger used to play). I also beat up my Ibanez sz520 solid body and Ibanez MMM1 (like Mike in Staind) pretty hard (these are for down tunings).
