ABOUT

Currently looking to join gigging Top 40 band. Hit me up!

I am a guitarist/singer and have been playing guitar for over 30 years. My biggest influences were Eddie Van Halen, Randy Rhoads, George Lynch, Paul Gilbert and Steve Vai. I've played in tons of bands over the years. I've worked with some of the biggest names in rock music, mostly as a touring lead guitarist. Killer Dwarfs, Revolver (now called Famous Underground), Random Robbery, Jimi Jamison (Survivor), Mike Reno (Loverboy) and Alan Frew (Glass Tiger) are just a few of the artists I have gigged with over the years.

I was a member of the Rachel Bolan (Skid Row) produced, New Jersey based, sleeze rock group, The Flu, in 1990.

In 1995, I co-founded, co-produced, fronted and was co-lead guitarist for a band called Fear Disorder. Fear Disorder was discovered by Zack Werner (Canadian Idol judge, President of Toronto-based Venus Management and Venus Records distributed by EMI). Zack was then working as an entertainment lawyer and felt Fear Disorder would be best suited to the U.K. and European markets. Fear Disorder didn't do too badly at home either, charting #10 upon their debut, In A Rage, when it was released to Canadian University and College radio. Shows with Voivod and FIGHT (Rob Halford of Judas Priest) would follow, as would a deal with Revolver Records in England. The music is available all over the world now, including Spotify, Itunes, eBay and Youtube.

Fear Disorder's first and only disc, In A Rage, was released to 27 countries in the U.K. and Europe, but the group would disband shortly before the disc's official release.

I am now a full-time guitar and band instructor for Arcadia Academy of Music in Woodbridge, Ontario

My current cover bands are Sonic Tonic (Top 40/Classic Rock/Disco/Country) and Head Trip (Classic Rock).
