I’m honored that my critics have labeled me “…an authentic musical personality” (Erik Erikkson, DC Advocate) whose performances “…transported the audience to lusher climes” (The Hawk Eye, Burlington, IA).  Over the past 30 years, I have performed in some of the world’s top venues in areas including San Francisco, Austin, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Hamburg, Paris, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, and Tokyo. My performances are recognized for being fun and entertaining, with a focus on quality music.

In concert, my programs push the boundaries of what defines the term “classical guitar”. By including the steel-string acoustic guitar, I am able to feature music by modern-day composers such as Michael Hedges and Andrew York, while still using the standard classic (nylon-string) guitar for established crowd favorites from 500 years of music from Europe and South America.  

I am an endorsee for D’Addario Strings, Gibson Guitars, and Keith Adams Concert Classic Guitars.
