Home Base: New York

Age: 35

Style: Progressive instrumental rock.

Influences: Michael Romeo, Paul Gilbert, John Petrucci, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, J.S. Bach.

Gear: Ibanez 7-string electric, Ibanez Artwood 7-string acoustic, Line 6 amplification, Behringer V-Amp, Soldano cabinets, Lava cables, GHS Boomers (.009 set), Dunlop Big Stubby picks.

Best Moment at GH05: “That would be playing for Joe Satriani. Being ‘on’ that night also made it really cool. Waking up at 6 a.m. with only one hour of sleep to play on a live television broadcast with Juan Carlos Coronado was totally mind-blowing. Sharing the stage with such a diverse group of guys was a once in a lifetime opportunity. GH05 made me realize where I stand in the guitar playing world, and I will now take my craft more seriously.”
