Experienced rhythm/lead guitar player seeking established band/musicians in Temecula or surrounding areas.

I have well over 100 shows under my belt, pro gear, and a pro attitude.

In addition to guitar, I can contribute to backup vocals/harmonies, and also play bass.


I played a lot of music in my early 20s and 30s writing, recording, performing, booking bands, doing promotions, and touring regionally.

I have a fair amount of professional studio experience and like to think I possess an good ear for hooks, melodies, harmonies, and arrangements.

I'm happy playing anything in the genre of rock, indie, funk, pop, acoustic etc. I'm not interested in playing metal, hardcore, or nu metal - nothing against it, it's just not my scene.

Throughout the years, I've shared the stage with Neon Trees, After Midnight Project, Unwritten Law, Hunter Hayes, 12 Stones, The Moth & Flame, Ryan Shupe & the RubberBand, Royal Bliss and more.
