ABOUT

STRONG FOCUS WITH DIRECTION!
I have been playing guitar non-stop since 1969, with monumental amounts of hours put in.

I have extensive experience as a full time professional from 1979-to-1997 in many hard rock/heavy metal/power metal hair bands; West Hollywood, San Francisco and Sacramento scenes during the 80's, as well as touring and studio. Along with extensive gigging experience. I was also a full time guitar teacher throughout the 1980's. Although I am always striving to improve, I am highly accomplished as a lead guitarist, musician, and live performer.

Originals and some choice covers.

Available for mostly local gigs.

I am still very professional.
