A 5 year old boy, the Ed Sullivan Show, and the Beatles. For me that was a recipe that stirred up a passion that to this day burns deep in my soul. Music consumed my life as a child and as an adult. I am one of the blessed ones that were fortunate enough to make it my profession for so many years. It has taken me to places I never dreamed as well as taken me back to times I will never forget. In 1999 after 20 years in the music business I went into semi-retirement to focus on a family and a business career. I am very blessed to have partnered up with two of the most awesome souls on the planet, George Fuller and Maylee Thomas, to establish The Guitar Sanctuary. The world's coolest boutique guitar shop. I still perform weekly at Pubs in the Plano, Allen, and McKinney Texas doing my originals and unique unplugged versions of songs that keep us young.
