I was born in the late 1960’s just outside the St. Louis Missouri area, to parents of Artistic and musical backgrounds. I started playing guitar in the early 80’s, while building and creating various things on weekends in the garage with my Dad. From wood graphics, to band banners, photography and video production… It was only a matter of time before art and music collided and an interest in combining the two came to be. Meddling with customizing guitar builds in the mid-80’s to the realization of understanding and building guitars from scratch, led me in a search that ended in Los Angeles, in the summer of 2009. There I learned the art of neck-thru, solid body guitar building from Master luthier Neal Moser ( formerly of BC Rich guitars, mid 1970’s – mid 80’s). Applying the skills that I learned, I now create one of a kind custom guitars with subtle details that set them apart from the norm, while trying to maintain a classic look and style, familiar to all.
