A Bachelor degree in Classical Guitar Performance as well as advanced studies in composition, orchestration and ethnomusicology provided the foundation which allowed him to further launch upon a continuing journey dedidated to the exploration of international music and to become a trail blazer in the world of guitar. He encompases aspects of music from the lurid, intoxicating deltas of the deep American South to the sultry driving beats found in the all-night coffee houses of Madrid. From the delicate harmonies of the Irish Coast to the intricate melodies of the Sudan, Egypt's Nile Valley and Afghani mountain ranges. His guitar work combined with acoustic percussive techniques, at times a malestrom of sound and texture, at times delicate tapestries of woven emotion and imagery is always pinpoint, accurate and thoughtful. His voice possesses a deep rich urban bluesy quality evocative of experiences captuted and lives lived. Whether performing original or cover music, he combines these elements to create an epic and novel experience.
