Music has always been a way for me to connect with people without using words. It really is the universal language. I have walked away from so many recording sessions with great satisfaction in, not only sharing music with some of my favorite people, but learning more about life in the process.
I have been fortunate enough, in all my years, to have recorded and performed with:
"The Wylde Truth Band, Fred Afshar, Chris Ho, The Electric Toasters, The Stand, Swen Seaholm, The Locomotive, Sonic Blue, Cornerstone, The Stoney Dudes, and much more!!!"
A true master is an eternal student so I have adopted a firm policy to never stop honing my craft. The mentors and great influences of my musical life have been:
Shlomo Carlebach, John Vanselow, Fred Benedetti, Paul Gilbert, Richard Smith, Tim Benge, Chuck Lavelle, K.C. Mange, Steve Trovato, Eddie Van Halen, Steve Vai, Jesse Cook and Marc Antoine.
The future of music for the next up and coming generation is very important to me. I have enjoyed teaching guitar, bass, drums and piano to hundreds of music lovers for over 25 years!!!
