Ever since Jr. High School my passion was music. I have been playing the guitar since then and have not stopped.

I was part of an acoustic rock band that played out in small clubs in Ft. Lauderdale. The highlight of this experience was playing at the Hard Rock Restaurant, which was located in the Sawgrass Mall. I played both rhythm and lead guitar.
