I grew up in Wisconsin where I started seriously studying guitar and playing in bands at the age of 12. After High School I began teaching guitar lessons. And I've found teaching guitar to be one of the most fulfilling aspects of my life and wouldn't trade it for any other job! I was in all original bands until I was 22 and then I started playing covers and have played for some pretty amazing crowds and venues since that started! In July of 2012, I married the love of my life and then moved to Las Vegas, NV!
