I have been playing guiter practically all my life. Having played in all types and styles from early rock and roll, country, jazz and on to the classics, I still am learning and growing and exploring new things. I came late to composing but I find that to be the most rewarding pursuit of all. It is hard to define my greatest influence but certainly among them are the great Chet Atkins, Les Paul, Julian Bream, jazz guitarists Johnny Smith and Wes Montgomery and more recently Tommy Emmanuel. I perform locally at weddings, parties and give concerts at libraries and other events.
