I am a visual designer, artist and online product designer at Gringo Media, a company I co-founded with my wife and business partner, Claudia Lopez Rhea. We have been designing and creating online products for Fortune 500 clients for over 19 years.
I've been playing guitar for nearly 30 years, and I practice every day.
I am only looking for people to jam with on an informal basis. I no longer wish to gig or play in a loud band (or play loud rehearsals). I'd love to play with advanced musicians that can teach me something new (and hopefully I can return the favor). It's about personal growth and learning for me.

Growing up in the '80s, I got hooked on the great players of that era (Eddie Van Halen, Warren DiMartini, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, etc.) and count them as major influences on my playing style.
These days I am working more on my Jazz Fusion chops and have discovered (and re-discovered) some wonderful players in the process, such as: Allan Holdsworth, Frank Gambale, Steve Morse and Alex Hutchings. I have also recently taken up the violin, and I look forward to getting deeper and deeper into this beautiful instrument in the years to come.
