Thank you for visiting my website. A little description: I've had the priveledge of living in Western North Carolina as a full-time jazz musician and music teacher for the past 10 years, sharing the stage with some of Asheville's most accomplished musicians and performing for audiences across the U.S.
My goal on every gig is to "play to the room," which means striving to adapt to the ambiance and creating the right mood for each setting. In listening/concert venues, I try to strike a balance between paying homage to the rich history and tradition of jazz and moving forward with progressive rhythms, harmonies and the like. My first love is the jazz repertoire, but like many of my contemporaries, I also enjoy interpreting Classical music and pop tunes. Please take note that I'm available for hire as a solo guitarist, ensemble guitarist (duos, trios, quartets, etc.), and as an accompanist.
Professionalism is important to me. Thus, I encourage effective communication and feedback before, during, and after performances.
