I've been playin guitar for over 10 years now. Currently going to school in Minnesota and playing on the side. I've been in a few bands, done a reaonable amount of recording, session, and teaching, and have gotten the chance play alongside some really great acts over the years. Mostly just teaching and paid gigs right now.
I do mostly rock, blues, and occasionally some heavier stuff.
Constantly chasing tone and after new gear.
I teach at Soundworks studios in the Minneapolis St. Paul area. Check us out at
