About Me



I started my journey playing guitar as a teenager.  As my playing progressed, the need to have my guitars perform to my playing style became essential.  That's when I decided to start working on my own instruments.  I became obsessed with the art of building & repairing guitars, so I decided to enroll in the Master Luthier Program at the prestegious Galloup School of Lutherie.  After graduation, I soon realized I am living my dream.  I am fortunate to be able to do what I love...work on guitars!
