I was born in Ft. Worth, Texas. When I was 11, I took my brother’s guitar, took a few lessons, and never looked back. While attending Texas Tech in Lubbock, I started playing at frat parties and local clubs. In 1978, I moved to Houston and toured the club circuit with local bands. Currently, I teach beginner to advanced guitar lessons at Fort Bend Music Center.

I teach piano, guitar and percussion music lessons.
