If anybody's counting, I have taught classes in transportation, sailing, SAT prep, computer
technology, public speaking, and guitar. I have been in over 30 bands, done sound for two, worked
in 3 studios (including my own), played on multiple sessions, and have repaired and modified
guitars for 28 years.
I really need to mention that I am the single father of two amazing teenagers, both of whom are
musical - one of whom is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter in her own right - Emily Henry.
I bought my first guitar in 1965, got an electric in 1966 and
joined my first paying band in 7th grade. I played guitar and
bass in various bands and learned guitar electronics and
modifications all through high school and college. I studied
music and recording while at UVA, graduated, and went to
work managing a music store. When not at the store, I was an
engineer at Loft Studios, where I also occasionally played
session guitar and bass.
During the next 25 years, while still playing guitar and bass
and doing sound in bands, I pursued a successful career in
high-tech marketing. After a time, it became unsatisfying, and
finally in the summer of 2004, I walked out the door and went
full-time, pursuing my talents and passion in music.
