Biography

Learned to play the guitar back in high school and played on and off with a school band until I graduated. Thereafter the focus shifted to academics and  a career in Information Technology until June 2009 at which time I once again took up the guitar and started to play. Attendance at Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts and Avante Academy Of Music were to refine my knowledge of music theory as well as to obtain additional coaching in playing the guitar.
