Hailing from the wintery depths of New Hampshire, I followed my passion for music to Guitar Center Hollywood, only to further my knowledge and drive for the sport of the never ending gear hunt. After spending some time performing and touring with east coast acts, I found myself actually needing to pay bills. I spent 4 years working with, and managing at an east coast music retailer, and have been at GC since 2011...with that said, I am here to help you. 

My skill set generally lies in what would be referred to as 'classic tech'. Which means that I am fluent in guitars and bass, amps, all guitar accessories, and effect pedals. However, I am versed in some of the high tech world as well. 

Also, I have an extreme fear of birds, which I believe stems from being bitten by a feral parrot as a child... Except for Larry Bird, only fellow basketball players should fear him. 

I use a Gibson SG standard, an Epiphone Elitist 1965 Casino, a 1983 JCM 800 4210, a Fender Hellcat, a Lovepedal Echo Baby, a Boss Tu-2, Boss Dm-2, Boss Dd-3, Boss Ph-1R, Boss Nf-1, Sansamp Bass Driver, and Mogami cables.
