I began playing guitar in the spring of 1997, but my music story truly began when I entered Oregon State University’s music program in 2009. With Neal Grandstaff I majored in guitar performance and learned about jazz styles as well as the classical literature. I discovered solo guitar music is my true passion and love styles including blues, ragtime, Celtic tunes and jazz guitar. I play instrumental pieces and also accompany myself as a singer.
I continue to expand my repertoire and improve my technique. I enjoy making each performance unique and entertaining.
I currently live in Portland, Oregon and travel wherever the music takes me.
I am available for weddings, restaurants, wineries and wine bars, parties and public and private events.
