Guitar Inspiration...

Performing

I began performing solo guitar for wedding ceremonies while attending the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay where I gained proficiency on both classical guitar and French horn.  Additionally, I have performed in an array of musical groups from wind ensembles to jazz and rock bands.              

Guitar Galore

The guitar is my preferred musical means of expression but I also enjoy playing bass guitar, ukulele, piano and Native American flute.  On occasion I will pull out the violin, mandolin or banjo.  Many of these instruments are recorded as backing tracks for added music texture during my guitar performances.   

Compositions

When I'm not making music, my wife and I enjoy hiking at High Cliff State Park and Horicon Marsh.  We recently discovered the beauty of Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park in Upper Michigan.  In some way, these places are actually an inspiration for composing and performing music.  My original music can be heard and purchased from cdbaby.
