I used to travel with my family for summer vacations. We would travel in our station wagon. I would stand in the way back (I was short enough to even jump a little!) and dance to Saturday Night Fever and Billie Jean. I grew up in the second greatest era of guitar music. The Sunset Strip, need I say more? I was most strongly influenced by Joe Satriani and even have a song titled "Satch-urated". Satch showcased song structure, melody, and how to convey soul, passion, and sincerity with each note. My college years were nothing short of incredible. Dunston Ashe was one of the biggest bands Penn State University ever saw. The Grape Street Pub in Philadelphia became a second home for us. For the past eight years I have lived in Los Angeles. Amongst many exciting experiences I have played guitar for legendary producer Richard Perry and have had the ultimate fortune of working with and learning from jazz legend Joe Sample.
