ABOUT

Started on guitar at 11, singing at about 14, and started teaching guitar at 16. Studied at Capilano University - Jazz Program, then gigged with Motown/R&B/Gospel, Rock and cover bands in my 20's but took a break for career, marriage and kids in my mid 30's. Started to get serious again around 2010, gigging weekends with corporate/wedding band and one of my old rock bands. I'll do a weekend road trip now and again if it looks like fun and pays well otherwise I stay in the greater Vancouver area.
