I was born and raised in Amador county. I am a 15 year old blues/rock guitarist. I started playing guitar when I was about 7 years old. I would play the guitar every now and then, until I was about 10. Then I started to take it seriously.

I learned most of everything I know from YouTube, and hours and hours of practice. I have had some lessons here and there, but YouTube has taught me the most.  I then became a street performer and I would go to Old Sacramento, Murphy’s, and many small towns earning the funds I needed to continuously upgrade my equipment.  I did that for about 4 years until just about when I turned 14. I became much too busy with my band and I started to make that my main focus.

Since my first show at the Pine Grove Schoolhouse in 2012, I have played at many places throughout Amador and Calaveras Counties.  I have also played around the Sacramento area as well.  In May of 2014 I played the Sacramento Music Festival.  There were bands there from all over the world.  I played 3 venues, one of which was on the main stage, opening for Deke Dickerson. I was invited back for their Saturday night All-Star Jam and featured as a special guest with musician Mick Martin.  I have since been invited back as a special guest with him at the 2014 Sacramento State Fair.

I opened for Pat Travers at the Boardwalk in Sacramento, and I opened for Kansas and Johnny Winter at the Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort.  Due to the overwhelming response, I was then brought back to headline my own show in July of 2014. There was standing room only.

I admire the works of bands like Guns N’ Roses, which is rock, but right now I play more blues music like Stevie Ray Vaughn and Buddy Guy.  I look forward to my future in music and performing in the entertainment industry.
