I am a Las Vegas-based lounge and showroom guitarist. I've been here since 1986. I'm originally from Cleveland, Ohio.
I hold Bachelor and Master of Music degrees in guitar performance from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, as well as K-12 Music Education certification through University of Nevada Las Vegas.
I play electric, acoustic and classical guitar, as well as electric bass, banjo (4 string), and mandolin. I'm a tenor vocalist (lead and harmony), and also have skills on woodwinds (sax, flute, clarinet).
