I started out on the electric in 1988 taking lessons from a Jazz guitarist in North Jersey. I was influenced by many of the guitar heros of the 80s including George Lynch, Eddie Van Halen, Vito Bratta, Yngwie Malmsteen, and Joe Satriani. I took various music classes throughout my high school and college career. I've played in Progressive rock, Classic rock, and Christian rock bands. I'm currently working on a solo project.
