Just as a shadow is a representation of its master, I strive for my music to be a shadow of the event for which I am playing. My role is to enhance the experience, to enrich the moment. From background ambience to an attention getting performance, this is what I live to do. It is my pleasure to offer my music to you.


I picked up my first guitar back in 1993. I was self-taught for five years before studying classical guitar at UC Santa Cruz under William Coulter and Mezut Özgen where I received a B.A. in Music with Honors. Since then I have split my time between teaching and performing. I also enjoy graphic design, and spending time in the great outdoors.
