Guitarist since 1992, at the age of 12 learning basic chords, chord progresions, and scales and modes in the beginning. Started playing with a church in a small town south of Atlanta in Riverdale Ga.
By the age of 15 started playing regularly with the church band and playing out of state shows at conventions in Nashville Tn. and school talent shows. Progressed as an acoustic player to classical guitar with the teachings of Rosenbaum in early school years. At the age of 18 started garage band and wrote several songs with the members at that time in a band called Premonition. Those members were heavily influenced by Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and many other Heavy thrash bands on ly to contribute to technique and speed of playing ability.

The goal is to accomplish success in the music industry while making friends and learning along the way. To entertain the soul of the guitar in front of others no matter what mood or feeling they have. A lick for every emotion and to connect with our species in the way of song.
In words of Jimmy Hendrix...When the power of love overcomes the love for power...the world will know true peace.
