He lives in Durham, North Carolina, where he is a software training consultant by day and a guitarist by night. He play fast-tempo, upbeat blues on a classical guitar.
He was inspired to take up guitar at age twelve, after hearing the recordings of Josh White, a South Carolina blues guitarist, and Carlos Montoya, a Spanish flamenco guitarist. He had never heard anything like them before, and both were revelations. He was also inspired by Ricky Nelson’s music, especially the playing of his lead guitarist, James Burton, a young, self-taught musician from Louisiana who later played for Elvis Presley.
