Hello, I play Guitar,Steel Drum (Lead Pan),Bass,Piano,Percussion and Sing. Music has filled my life for as long as I can remember. I grew up in rural Illinois near the Mississippi River listening to Elvis, Johnny Cash and 70’s rock. At about age 15 I picked up a guitar and started playing rock and roll and then discovered blues and jazz. I studied locally at Blackhawk College in Moline Illinois. Later I moved to Hollywood, California to study with some of the top studio musicians in LA at the Guitar Institute of Technology (GIT). From there I traveled all over the United States playing in various blues and classic rock bands. Eventually I made my way to Florida where I finally settled on Treasure Island in 2004.
