About Me

The guitar has been a passion of mine for twenty years. I have studied at the Hartford Conservatory and Western Connecticut State University as a jazz performance major. I have received private instruction from guitar legend Joe Beck as well as West Conn professors Jamie Begian and Chris Morrison. Master classes from Pat Martino and Robben Ford have also been insightful and inspiring. I am currently putting my effort into solo jazz guitar and working on a solo cd of all original material. Writing and reading about jazz is an extension of my love for the music and I hope to contribute with the written word.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
