8 Time San Antonio Guitar Wars Winner


-Born in Austin Texas 9/12/72

-Raised on music..all genres..mostly blues, blues rock, classic rock, country, hard rock.

-Play rhythm and lead guitar, acoustic live, and lead vocals. In studio play drums, bass, keys, vocals. etc etc.

-Started playing guitar as early as I can remember. Dad had, and still has a Gibson Hummingbird acoustic that totally mesmerized me as a child growing up. Would ask him to play every day and night for me.

-Influences: Guitar: Richie Sambora, Warren De Martini, Stevie Ray, Vai, several classic rock guitarists and country artists. Suprisingly influenced by quite a few drummers live..at concerts would always watch and listen to drummers...timing, styles, patterns, etc. Based a lot of my playing around beats, bass patterns etc. I don't really play in music stores, I may listen to anyone jamming, but I tend to just check out guitars, processors, equipment etc. It's not a phobia about playing in music stores, I just have never been a "store jammer real loud for hours" kinda player I guess.

-Favorite movie: Gladiator

-Favorite Guitars: EVH Wolfgangs, Fender Custom Shop Acoustic, Telecasters, I like relic and road worn beat up guitars...anything with character or a unique vibe.

- Have recorded for several artists in studio..engineer and produce as well. Full production. Love cinematography, music soundtracks etc.

-Shared stages with Ludacris, Jack Ingram, Tracy Lawrence, Restless Heart, Texaco Country Showdown Backing Band, Gary P. Nunn, Xhibit, Rebecca Valadez, others.

-In high school would practice 10+ hours daily, trying to develop my own style of playing, just basically learning to make a guitar talk. That's my goal, give it a voice of its own. To speak thru the guitar...hence my album, "My Time To Speak", a musical journey on the guitar if you will.

-Some music on Itunes, Amazon, Google Play, etc.

-Love listening to all types of music, and try to gather different vibes, sounds, etc to incorporate in my playing.

-Was diagnosed with MS, Multiple Sclerosis, in 2010, two days after winning Guitar Wars, Was paralyzed in left arm, hands, etc. a few days later. Lost total ability to play guitar, but strived to relearn, feel again (literally), and have come back to win Guitar Wars a few times since. Blessed.
