About Me

I am serious about learning everything I can about my instrument; not only playing and theory, but construction and maintenance as well. I am interested in technological advancements, especially if they can help broaden my creativity and expression through music.

Such things include:
*The setup of a guitar and perpetuation of its life *Mastering various music programs
*Experimenting with and implementing effects pedals
*Looping and on-stage creativity

I play music to support myself and do what it takes to become a prominent entity in the music industry. I believe the key to this success is being a multifaceted musician, specializing in many fields, such as technology, playing, writing, and promotion.
