Friction. Flowers. Spring performances – Apr. 8 – May 13.

To say that I don’t understand the creative effects of friction would be untrue. Whether I understand how to properly manage them, however, is a completely different story. Without fail, March comes at my particular line of business with a fury. Everything—past, present, and future—projects into this one month. Bookkeeping, client meetings, new clients. It’s …

Choices – and so it begins…

Foreward. Choices has been a project in the works for about a year. In 2016, I completed a renovation to my working studio.

Testimonial page updates.

One of the things I enjoy most as a wedding and event guitarist are the relationships I have with my clients. Many of them are kind enough to write about their experiences. In the grind of things, it’s easy to forget really simple, obvious things. For me, the draw of music, and the connections you …

We couldn’t be happier with our decision! Leading up to our big day, we could not have been more confident in our …
