25 years of performing/touring experience. Recording studio owner, guitar teacher and builder.

I mainly prefer to play guitar but I am also highly proficient on bass guitar, mandolin, dobro and lap steel. Super strong vocals (lead or backing).

From 1997 to 2018, I was a member of Pink Floyd Tribute "The Machine" I have worked in numerous situations including wedding/party bands and various original projects. Currently freelancing and looking for the right projects to call home.

As a sideman, I have played for late Vince Welnick of The Tubes and The Grateful Dead and have shared the stage with guitarist Marc Ford of The Black Crowes and Rich Robinson's Brotherhood. I have performed numerous times with drummer Matt Abts of Gov't Mule and keyboardist Johhny Neel, (known for his work with The Allman Brothers Band). I have also played along side of Matt Johnson, drummer on Jeff Buckley's masterpiece "Grace", as well as T. Lavitz of the Dixie Dregs. I have played with former Phil Lesh & Friends guitarist Jeff Pevar and sax great Norbert Stachel formerly of Tower of Power and the Roger Waters "In The Flesh" touring band.

Recording credits include appearances on dozens of albums including the entire catalog of Eyeball Records recording artists Sleep Station. I have led my own bands including the heavy prog-rockers Mirror.
