Originally born and raised in Detroit, Michigan.  I was introduced to music by my Dad when his band would come over and practice in our basement.  He bought me my first guitar when I was eight.  It was a Harmony guitar set that came out of a catalog (wish I still had that thing).  I've played in multiple bands in front of thousands of people during my musical adventures.  

I joined GC in January of  '03. I think the most rewarding part has been to see the kids I sold guitars to nine years ago getting signed to record deals and going out on major tours. 

My most recent move within the company was to the Hollywood store on Sunset Blvd.  I am the Vintage Acquisitions Manager here.  Basically, I oversee all of the vintage purchases for the entire company.  It's a very cool gig! 

We have the largest collection of vintage gear in the world at Guitar Center.  You'll find guitars by Fender, Gibson, Rickenbacker, PRS, Epiphone, Martin, Gretsch, Airline, Guild, Jackson, Ibanez, Kramer, Charvel, National and more.  Amps we have Fender Tweed, Blackface, Silverface, Brownies etc.  Other amps you can find here are Marshall, Mesa Boogie, Vox, Supro, Dumble, Kustom, Acoustic, Ampeg, Gibson, Gretsch, HiWatt just to name a few.  

Please feel free to contact me with any questions regarding your vintage gear.  If you got it, I want it!
