About Me

Since I began my tenure at Music and Arts in 2006, I've enjoyed assisting musicians of all skill levels - beginners to advanced and professionals who make their living playing music.  It's as exciting for me to help someone select their first instrument as it is going through the myriad of choices that professionals have today. 

I began formal music lessons at the age of 8 and continue playing to this day.  Since 1980, I've been a professional guitarist and vocalist playing all over the country.  In 2000, I began building a recording studio at my house and today it is a very well equipped facility that does a large variety of projects each year. 

With my extensive playing and recording experience I am happy to put that experience to work with helping musicians reach their goals.  Whether it's putting together a Protools (or other DAW) recording setup or finding that perfect guitar, keyboard, microphone or drumset, I am here to help.

Did you know that Music and Arts sells gear from manufacturers like PRS, Gibson Custom, Gibson, Martin, Taylor, Guild, Neumann, Sennheiser, AKG and many others?  I hope you'll consider coming in to speak with us about your musical needs.  We can take the time to find the best options for you at the best price.

Please call or email if I can assist you.
