Working on: better guitar tone, and my musical voice. As well as understanding the human condition and a music theory method for guitarists and non musicians

Worst childhood memory: Gettin my first taste of racism at age 7. Uh me no likey

Personal heroes: Wes montgomery, Chaucer, tony hawk, basically anyone who is willing to pursue what their heart tells them to!!

You may have seen or heard me: on ABC 7, headlining the house of blues, bilwaukee summerfest, blues on halsted, as a sideman for the bands: tyson parker, remedy, crash, mer funkufonic, alex hoffer, kelly condron. Now and again i can be seen jammin with the pat mcghee band, pistol pete, and various rock acts that travel through chicago

Nobody knows I’m: I’m always watching what goes on around me! You may not see me but i see you and all that you do!!!!

I’ve never been able to: forget!!!!

My fantasy is: to travel the world to play with the musicians each country can offer

If I could change one thing about myself: I would love to have the ability to speak my mind more often i usually just lay back in the cut and let fools argue.

People who knew me in high school thought I was: an old soul, a great listener and a hopeless romantic

My most irrational act: Joining too white crew!!!! Besides that, giving up what seemed to be stability for what may seem unstable

Pigout food: Thai food and almond bars

When I’m not working, I’m: tasting fine wines & cheeses…and pimpin!

If I’ve learned one thing in life: It is i have to prove myself everyday, not just one time

The three words that best describe me: patient, passionate, diligent
