It is my desire to touch people’s hearts with my music and encourage them to be “carried away” from their ordinary state of being, to a place of enchantment. That said, I have encountered many different modes of the guitar that support this resonance, ranging from Classical to Spanish, from Jazz to Eastern, and Folk to Blues. Rather than playing pre-written songs, I choose the intuitive, improvisational route that adjusts to the mood of the moment in order to enhance the experience, bring out its fullest potential. This continually challenges me to be present to the ambiance of the setting. It is my belief that only by being authentically present while playing my instrument, can I bring the gift that is uniquely mine to this world.
My strength lies in creating an atmosphere - a backdrop of music - that supports the emotional landscape of the moment. Having played with countless musicians in my life, I have come to see that music is about the ability to listen to others, to feel into your surroundings before making a sound. I hope to bring this quality to as many people as possible, and can honestly say that my experience of playing at weddings, graduation ceremonies, meditation circles, and for friends has brought me tremendous amounts of joy. Music is my life and the center of my being.
