Hey there! I’m a 37 year-old guitar player from Hamilton, Ontario. I've got a wealth of live and studio performance experience across various genres, which has helped shape me into a versatile “jack of all trades" type of guitar player. Although I have a few steady artists and groups that I currently play with (always looking to add to this!), I’ve also worked with other artists and bands that required a last-minute or one-time sub for a gig and have successfully gotten them through those respective gigs.

Ways I can help you:
- I've got a pretty big repertoire and could potentially sub in on your cover gig.
- I’m a quick learner and could play on your original gig.
- I can possibly be available for shorter tours or runs of shows if the circumstances were right.
- I can be available for studio sessions, in person or deliver tracks recorded remotely. Message me to chat about your project! I successfully held a five-star rating on Fiverr for my session work, but recently moved away from the platform.
- I can accompany you on acoustic guitar if you’re a singer/songwriter.

If any of this interests you, send me a message or find me on my socials and we can chat! Cheers!

A few tube amps, Gibson and Fender USA made guitars, pedals as needed, etc. I have decent gear and I'll usually piece together a rig based on the gig.
