I grew up in a small town in Colorado called Minturn. Born 1967 in Glenwood Springs. I got into playing the guitar at age 13, and use to play a acoustic guitar with songs on the radio. I graduated High school in 1985 at Bellflower High. I then went on to Cerritos College and then finally went on to the Urban League and started a computer course in 1987. I got my first electric Strat and that was the beginning. I moved back home to Colorado in 1993 and then a friend of mine sold me a Les Paul and I bought a 4 track and a drum machine and started to make demos. I sent the tape around to people I worked with and then gave me the criticism I needed to make the tape sound good. I found a note in Musician Magazine for Statue Records in California needing new talent and that was in November 1996 that was when I got signed. The record Label teamed me up with Geoffrey England who plays keyboards and the best drummer and bass player they could find and with Kelly Coughlin as the engineer we had the makings of a great record. Like my demo it's all instrumental. I developed a Santana style and Geoffrey England who use to play with Steppenwolf back in the 60's we brought Santana and Steppenwolf together.
