I studied jazz guitar at Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music, but I love all kinds of music.  I've played in a variety of groups from rock to jazz, bluegrass to hip-hop, and pop to musical theatre.

Please contact me if you are looking to book one of my groups.

All Tuned Up
In All Tuned Up, we played a diverse range of pop and rock music. We covered artists from the 60's to the 00's, including Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, and Bruno Mars.
