Music inspires me and has brought so much to my life. I love to share that passion with my students and inspire them to kindle their own musical fire. I have extensive knowledge and performance experience but my ability to inspire students is my greatest asset.
I have 20+ years of teaching experience and as a performer I have toured the USA, Europe, Africa and Latin America with notable performances at the Kennedy Center, the Mexico City World Music Festival and the Zihuatanejo International Guitar Festival.
