My Story

I am passionate about playing and teaching guitar. I’ve had the privilege to teach at the finest private schools (Phillips Academy, Pingree School, Middlesex School in Massachusetts) and am currently an adjunct teacher at Academy at the Lakes in Land ‘O Lakes, FL.  I have over the years worked with A-list industry professionals. After graduation from Berklee College of Music in Boston, I did studio work, played clubs in the city and taught private lessons. After getting married, my wife and I moved to Wesley Chapel, FL. Along with raising 2 kids and thoroughly enjoying this area, I continue to teach, write and record music and play out as a professional guitar player.
