      I've released 6 albums and appeared on several compilation albums. I've been featured in Guitar for the Practicing Musician's Spotlight column and Guitar One Magazine's Fretbuzz column. I've written guest columns for Guitar 9 Records, Insane Guitar, and Sounduser.com, and album reviews for Prog4You.com.

      I've been playing guitar for nearly 25 years now. As you can see, I started young!

      I'm currently endorsed by Dean Guitars, Dean Markley Strings, SONiVOX MI Sound Libraries, Morley Guitar Pedals, and ADK Pro Audio.

      My presskit, as a PDF, can be downloaded here.

      Perhas the easiest way to explain me, musicwise, is to list my influences. So here we go!
