I have always been a Rock & Roll guitarist. Since 1977 I have been performing in bands of all types. Through the years I have played straight-up Rock, Prog Rock, Power Trio, Jazz-Rock-Fusion, Motown, Grunge, Latin-Jazz, Smooth Jazz, Classic Rock and Country.
I currently play with Hot Zone performing a mixture of Funk and Rock & Roll cover songs and originals. If you would like to see me perform, check the calendar on my home page.
Not one to sit still, I am exploring other collaborations and I am always interested in joining new projects, just to see what happens.
If you are looking for a lead or rhythm guitarist, please call me and tell me about your project, acoustic or electric. All styles and challenges are welcome! Let's make some Noise!
Listen below to some songs from my latest project
As an acoustic solo performer, I play an eclectic blend of original instrumental compositions and my own arrangements of popular tunes. Each show is a blend of my deep roots in Rock & Roll and the earthy sounds of the acoustic guitar.
During a show I use several different guitars in various tunings. At the beginning of a number, I use a loop pedal to record a rhythm track, a percussion track and other sounds. I will then play a lead, melody or improvisation over my various accompaniments. This creates a lush landscape of sound that adds a whole new dimension to "solo guitar" playing.
Come and see me play, I can be found performing in the heart of Napa and Sonoma County’s Wine Country, or around the San Francisco Bay Area. Check my calendar for dates and times.

If you’re searching for an acoustic guitarist experienced in ambient (or background) music, you’ve come to the right place. I offer a unique sound that is contemporary, melodic and sophisticated.
My unique instrumental interpretations of well-known melodies provide the perfect backdrop for all types of occasions including corporate parties, wine tastings, wedding receptions or at fine restaurants.
