Before starting a music lessons studio in Bend, Oregon, I was a professional guitarist in Nashville, TN and Los Angeles, CA. Being a professional touring and session guitarist in Nashville and Los Angeles was a wonderful career. I'm very thankful for all of the musical performances! Check out some of the images I captured from Madison Square Garden, Fenway Stadium, Wrigley Field, the Hollywood Bowl and late night shows such as Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Conan, Jimmy Kimmel and more!

In my guitar teaching career, I have had the honor of nurturing guitar students into music careers with major label artist and into university programs (and some have received scholarships to attend!). If you're seeking a dedicated and passionate guitar teacher to teach you guitar lessons, please contact me. I love teaching and meeting new people!
