Started playing guitar when I was 14. I've always been a rythm player and lead singer. I played professionally with my brother for 14 years in our band, DMZ. I've been doing alot of solo work for the past year. I grew up with music. My dad and uncles played, all three of my older brothers played. I grew up listening to everything from swing and early country to '50's-90's rock, soul and pop. My influences are rock, funk, punk, alternative, and soul. I like pretty much every kind of music.
