I began playing guitar as a child. My interest and talent with this instrument prompted me to pursue a college education based in music. I attended Western Illinois and DePaul Universities earning a B.S. degree in Sound Recording and Music Performance. I then attended National-Louis University earning a Masters in Elementary Education. I have 21 years of learning, playing, and teaching guitar.
I performed in several bands over the years: Purple Locomotive, The Bemhos, Pleasure Ruled , Shattered Silence, Azure Bloom, and Box, giving me a diverse background as well as valuable stage experience. I have recorded and released 4 original solo CD’s entitled : Fantasy World, Walking a Fine Line Between Love and Hate, Visions from the Vault, and most recently As Fate Would Have it.
