In my spare time, I play lead guitar in A Good Buzz -- a blues, classic rock, and country cover band based in Silicon Valley. I also enjoy composing and recording music. You'll find a selection of my compositions from 1991 through 2003 on this site -- as well as on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and Spotify. If you'd like to be notified when I add new music to this site, please subscribe to my occasional newsletter.

I play a 1970 Gibson Les Paul Custom, a Taylor 520e, and an Ovation Custom Legend. Some of my guitar player influences include Chet Atkins, Junior Brown, Jim Campilongo, Al Di Meola, Robben Ford, Danny Gatton, Allan Holdsworth, Mark Knopfler, Pat Martino, and Wes Montgomery. I studied under Vinny Valentino for a brief period in the late 1990s.


For digital landscape photography, I got started in 2000 with a Canon SD100 and am currently using a Canon SX280 HS. For casual mobile snapshots, I've used everything from a Palm Treo 600 to a Motorola Droid 4.
