Professional Touring and Studio Music Guitarist/Bassist full- and part-time since 1976. Worked production for Broadway, Bands for talk show hosts as well as back-up for major artists (ie.David Frost, Chuck Berry).

Studio call player for commercials, independent artists etc.

Currently doing more musicals at various levels from amateur to professional.


I started out as a rock band musician and that became my bread and butter for 30 years. I branched out into other areas because of my experience in live venue performance (Rock, Jazz, Country), Education and reading ability.

I feel a guitarist should be a guitarist that can be more than a "one trick pony".  The more you know, the more you play, the more you can do.
