ABOUT

Hello fellow musicians. I have been playing guitar since I was 11 years old. I am 37. I attended HCC as a jazz major for a few years. I have played in several bands and have enough experience to work professionally along side of others with the same attitude. Rising to the occasion with other players is more important than taking two steps back for me. I mainly lay in the jazz/funk/experimental/groove/blues/rock/reggae/hip-hop feel but will play other styles/genres if need be. No limits and no dismissal of anything. I practice and learn on my own time and can come prepared to rehearse. I can sight read slowly or study ahead of time. I can read chord charts and build chords like no tomorrow. I am learn-able and willing to try things outside of my norm.
