There is a huge catalog of bands and musicians that have influenced me over the years. Mostly guitarists, but not only. I am a huge fan of Richie Kotzen, Paul Gilbert, and Randy Rhodes. I am currently a big fan of bands like Matchbox 20, Trapt, Maroon 5, Hoobastank...but have been know to drift off into to other musical directions. (Love the Reggae style of music. It's just really makes you groove.)


Let's see, I'm still kind of very old school with a digitech effects processor, Fender 4X12 cabinet, musicman 100watt amp head, and the occassional Boss pedals (Acoustic Simulator). I have 10 guitars. 3 Fender Strats, 1 Washburn N2, 2 Ibanez guitars (1 custom), 1 Fender (1 classical), 1 Kramer (Re-Worked), 1 Ovation Celebrity, 1 Samick Greg Bennette Acoustic.
