I am a performer, songwriter and guitar instructor living in Northeast Minneapolis. Along with performing as a soloist, I am a member of two different groups; Step Rockets and Soul Tree. Step Rockets is an original indie rock band and Soul Tree is a variety band, both based in Minneapolis. I play around 150+ shows a year in bars, clubs, weddings and private events.
My musical interests brought me to Perpich Center for the Arts music program, McPhail music program, McNally Smith Music College and later studying under Paul Esch. After College I became the resident guitar instructor at St. Barnabas Center for the Arts in Plymouth, Minnesota and continue to teach private lessons in Minneapolis, St. Paul and the surrounding areas.

I love playing the guitar! I find great joy in passing on this passion to anyone who has an interest in playing. I enjoy being able to shape the lesson to suit whatever goals the student has in mind. Learning how to play your favorite songs (all the way through!), develop your song writing skills, learning how to read music, or understanding how music theory works on your guitar. I would love to show you how much fun it is to play!
There are a few places to choose from to take lessons. I have a studio space in Minneapolis and in Plymouth. I also go to the students home to teach lessons. In – Home lessons are the most popular way to take private lessons. If you are in the Plymouth area I have a studio space at St. Barnabas Center for the Arts on Old Rockford Road and CR 9. My Minneapolis location is in the Profile Event Center near the University of Minnesota Campus. Here is a map.
