I grew up in Georgia but moved to New Jersey at the beginning of 7th grade. I didn’t have a lot of friends when I moved up here so music became my best friend. I started teaching myself how to play guitar when I was 13.
I have been playing guitar for just about 17 years now. I also play bass and sing. I’ve dabbled with drums and piano a bit and can get by on both. I also have become quite proficient at programming drums as well as electronic elements for recordings. I have toured the country many times with several different bands.
I started recording shortly after I learned to play. I acquired a used Fostex 4-track and never turned back. I began developing skills in mic placement and acoustic treatment. I also began developing other recording techniques that I will be talking about throughout this blog. I have continued getting better and better equipment. The equipment I have now is light years beyond what I ever dreamed of having.
When I’m not playing music or recording, I do many other creative things. I love to write and draw. I also read, A LOT. I recently moved to Florida with my wife. I can be found reading or playing guitar on the beach quite often. I also am fanatical about the New York Mets and Carolina Panthers.
