ABOUT

I am the lead guitar player for Monroe Community Church in Grand Rapids, MI (h.monroecommunitychurch) and Harderwyk Ministries Watershed (.harderwyk/watershed). I play because I love to play. It's my passion, my worship and the power source that recharges my batteries. Looking for like minded musicians who enjoy playing and creating together. I also enjoy building my own effects pedals and working up to an amp build as well as a guitar build.

Influences

I am a late bloomer/ self-taught guitar player who started playing in 2011. The majority of my influences come from the massive amounts of Blues music to which I have listened over the past 20 years or so. When I'm playing a lead line, I am hearing vocal runs and embellishments, and trying to channel those through the guitar. Favorite quote :"Learn to play the music you want to hear." ~ Rev. Billy F Gibbons
