I live and work in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts. I first picked up a guitar when I was twelve, and music has been at the center of my life ever since. My primary instruments are guitar, bass and drums, but I can also hold my own on keyboard, and pedal steel. I have played in many bands over the years, most recently William Joseph & James and The Additions. I also own Machine Gun Studios, where I am an engineer and producer. I have been teaching music lessons in the greater Boston area since 1998.
