Background/Mission Statement:
As a professional guitarist, composer/arranger, and producer, my goal is to write, produce, or perform the best production as possible whether it be a commissioned job or independent production.
I have experience performing, composing, and arranging in a variety of styles including jazz, fusion, funk, rock, Latin/folk/world, electronic, hip-hop/r & b, and classical music.
As a producer I have worked with various project bands and in collaboration with film makers in independent film, along with basic video effects and production.
