I am a young professional guitarist that has been playing and performing for 14 years. Music is my passion and guitar has become my main companion and outlet to perform, and share, music. I recently graduated from The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a Bachelor of Fine Arts majoring in American Finger style Guitar, this is the first degree program of its kind and I am their first international graduate. I have studied with some of New Zealands and America’s top Finger style instructors and performers, as well as learning the approaches of other styles of guitar: Classical, Flamenco, and Jazz. This broad experience of playing rooted, in Finger style guitar, has helped me develop a diverse performance experience either on stage or as background ambience. Quite simply, I can set a relaxed mood and atmosphere that leaves my audiences at peace and entertained. I am frequently told it is just so nice to listen to me play. I have performed in restaurants, bars, hotels, corporate functions, and weddings for 8 years. I am an easy going, polite and conscientious person that caters to others needs. Having studied in America for 6 years I have moved back to New Zealand to share my musical abilites and bring a different experience to typical live entertainment.
