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).  I have training and experience in all popular and commercial musical styles, including pop, country, R&B, funk, rock and jazz.
