Originally from Connecticut, I started guitar lessons at age nine. After studying guitar all through high school, I moved to Boston to attend the Berklee College of Music, graduating Cum Laude. After graduation I played extensively at clubs and colleges throughout the New England area including the Boston Garden, Fleet Center and the House of Blues. Other highlights include a tour of Switzerland, playing in New York City, recording an album in Chicago, and performing in a marketing film produced by Bose Corporation.
In addition to playing in bands, I was teaching myself the art of recording and composition. Music I've created in my home studio has been used on ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX and many cable television networks. Shows include "The Voice" and "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert". My music has also been used in feature films and in a national ad campaign for Blue Diamond almonds.
Additional Booking Notes
When performing a smaller private function, sound is provided by the guitar amplifer. No PA is used so there is no microphone available to the client.
