I'm a versatile musician with an eclectic taste for many genre. I grew up in a musical household full of German folk and classical music, and sixties rock & roll. I began music as a teenager when a friend gave me a guitar. I soon established a repertoire of my favorite popular music.
I quickly realized I needed formal instruction, and began studying with Tom Runyan, a very accomplished jazz and classical guitarist. I also began private piano lessons and enrolled at Pasadena City College, where I completed two years of intensive music theory, history, composition, and performance courses. I later studied with the virtuoso classical guitarist Vincent Macaluso and learned jazz guitar arranging from Howard Heitmeyer.
I then developed a taste for folk and bluegrass music, and began frequenting festivals to learn this style. My musical ambitions were postponed by my desire to raise a family on a steady income, but I have recently begun recording and posting my songs and arrangements.
