I approach lutherie utilizing my combined experience as a craftsman and a performer. Studying Guitar Performance at San Francisco Conservatory of Music I developed a critical ear.


Working with luthiers such as Ervin Somogyi and Gael Mckeon I honed my skills as a luthier in building and restoration, making instruments meet the demands of modern players.
