ABOUT

I've been playing guitar since I was 14. Initially self taught, I began taking jazz guitar lessons in my twenties while in Norfolk, VA and studied music and performed with the jazz ensemble at Old Dominion University. Currently I perform with several groups around Pittsburgh including the Blue-Hots, Ronni Weiss and the Slow Cookers and the Shameless Irish Band. I can read charts, improvise, and understand theory. I have also played Bass Guitar in reggae and jazz bands. I'm looking for additional fill-in, sub, studio and other opportunities.
