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.
