I'm an independent solo artist and guitar teacher from New York City.  My debut album, Far Enough Into the Void, predominantly features guitar-driven instrumental songs spanning a diverse array of styles, including (but not limited to) progressive rock and metal, funk, and fusion. The album features several guest musicians, including Australian guitarist Chris Brooks, French virtuoso Christophe Godin, and Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal (Bumblefoot, Sons of Apollo, Guns 'n Roses).

I've been singing and playing guitar for over 25 years. Primarily self-taught for the first few years, I then studied jazz and classical music in college and graduated in 2005 from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia. I've been fortunate enough to study with many talented teachers over the years, most notably acclaimed former Guns 'n Roses guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal.

I'm also proud to be among the many talented artists who use Vigier guitars.

In addition to my  debut album Far Enough Into the Void, I've also performed backup vocals on Bumblefoot's album Abnormal (2008), and lead vocals and guest guitar solos on Dark Empire's album From Refuge to Ruin (2012).

I'm available for session work as a guitarist and vocalist, and you can currently see me perform with Long Island's #1 Journey Tribute Band - Any Way You Want It, as well as critically acclaimed progressive metal outfit Orissa.

I'm also always available to teach guitar lessons - both privately in the NYC area, and internationally via Skype.  I've been teaching guitar lessons to students of all ages and levels, in varied styles, and in both private and group settings, for over a decade.
