I grew up in New Jersey. The photo above was taken in the woods behind my house. Nature and natural things have always served as inspiration to me. Through the sounds I create, to the experiences and feelings I hold closest. 

When I was thirteen years old I found my dad's old acoustic guitar up in the attic.  I don't know that I knew at the time that left-handed guitar players couldn't play a right-handed guitar.

I taught myself to play upside down. I've never known the correct way to make music. I just work on the sounds until they feel right. You can hear some of these sounds on this site. Sit down and have a listen.
