Variety is the spice of life. I enjoy playing a myriad of styles ranging from Rock, blues, jazz, funk, pop, country, bluegrass, metal, dance music to classical, flamenco/spanish guitar, and Middle Eastern and North African Music. Call it musical ADD, but I find excitement in every genre and try to take bits and pieces of everything to mold my own original sound. My music is a journey or process, there is no end in mind and my musical voice continues to develop and grow every day. Never quit learning new things is my Mantra.
