I have been playing guitar for over 35 years and have been teaching guitar for over 20 years. Until the age of 18, I studied under accomplished D.C. area jazz guitarist Hank Bryant, whose teacher's teacher was none other than legendary classical guitarist Andres Segovia. I studied classical guitar at Saint Mary's College of Maryland. I also performed in the Saint Mary's College jazz band. After college, I studied jazz guitar under local jazz guitar legend Paul Wingo, who performed regularly in the Baltimore/Washington area. Apart from playing solo guitar, I play guitar and sing in Baltimore-based rock bands The Jennifers and Batworth Stone.
