I performed on the Backstreet Boys song "Soldier" on the album "In A World Like This".
I co-wrote and recorded on "Clarity", a song featured on one of Land Rover's biggest international TV ads.
I also co-wrote and performed on "All You Are" which was featured on Showtime's "Army Wives" and ABC Family's "Cutting Edge-Fire and Ice".
For 2 years I toured as Lead Guitarist for John Lee Hooker Jr. Performing in nearly every state in the U.S. multiple times and across Europe and North Africa.
A couple of my acknowledgements are:
Guitarmageddon Store Final (Guitar Center San Jose)-WINNER
Emergenza (battle of the bands) - Best Guitarist as selected by Raphael Moreira of Pink, Sheryl Crow, Christina Aguilera.
My background encompasses the many areas of the musician life. I have extensive experience in writing music, performing, touring, recording, collaborating making music for TV and film and of course teaching! Because I am first a fan of music, guitar in particular, I am able to stay excited about it. Therefore, I am constantly learning and expanding my craft. This helps me to connect with the challenges the student faces as well as share in the excitement of the learning process.
I have taught people of all ages and walks of life. Throughout my own journey I have had many great teachers and I am always happy to pay it forward and share what I have learned. It's a great joy of mine to watch my students be able to play something I taught them that they previously felt was not possible.

I like to
I like to first see what the skill level of the student is, if any. Then I like to find out what the student is most interested in learning. Would you like to learn how to play a lot of songs that you love? Learn how to solo like your favorite guitar player? Learn how to write your own songs? Once I have a clear understanding we can begin at the appropriate place.
