Tell us a little about your background...
I have been a guitarist & bassist/singer all my life,I started playing at age six,and it all snowballed from there!! I played acoustic guitar for many years,and shortly after my brother gave me a beat up electric guitar & amp !!From there I played with many individuals in bands with people a lot older than me. It kind of kick started my first real bands where I learned to play lead and sing a little bit. After that I played some gigs throughout high school, and also participated in playing guitar & bass in the school musicals. I graduated early and went on to become a classical guitar major in college( because my music theory grades were so high ( as I slept through most of those classes) so my teacher helped me move on into that phase of my learning. It was great for me to learn about using my right hand to finger pick!! I also became chorally trained as a vocalist which was useful! I played more and then Enrolled in the Guitar Institute of Technology, where I played with the likes of Norman Brown , and Richard Smith, as well as Paul Gilbert , and Billy Sheehan!! I graduated at the top of my class and instantly loved ( and still do love) jazz , fusion funk, rock and also some classical music!! I love guitarists like Scott Henderson , Russ Freeman , Craig Chaquico, and so on.

I have a new jazz-fusion band called Streetbeat! We are in the process of breaking out here in Orlando! It is a long road that I am greatly enthusiastic about but we are just starting to walk that road!! We are putting our ears to the ground and we are keeping our eyes on the streets
so we can see and hear what is next for Streetbeat!!!
