February Pisces : Year of the Snake


I was born into a family of guitar players, singers, musicians, and music lovers. Started playing guitar when I was seven. Put it down for some inexplicable reason to play tenor sax for a couple of years. But then I picked up the guitar again at age 12. Took classical and flamenco lessons for three years, but my guitar teacher--the fabulous Tim Barnett--was a big metalhead. So I was nursed on a steady diet of Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai, Kirk Hammett, Dave Mustaine, and the like. My first official band was a grungy, Alice In Chains ripoff called Subterfuge. After that, I played solo for many years. I am currently in Bog Iron, a local Irish rock band, and in Vulture King, a heavy rock band. 

I am a musician and a writer who touches other artistic fields when time, resource, and inspiration permit. Here you will find information about upcoming appearances, shows, etc, and also about my various creative projects: Vulture King, The Bog, The Piscean Creed, et al.

I'm currently playing throughout the summer with the John Michael Band and the Irish rock variant thereof, "Paddy Murphy".

Live at Mortimer's in Marina, CA - October 6, 2012I was born and raised in Bakersfield, CA. (Turns out...a lot of people were.) I'm based out of Seaside, on the Monterey Bay.
