Born and raised in Beautiful British Columbia, I have been an avid fan of music since about 11, and no this isn't your typical kids selection of weird Al and horrible rap; however timeless classics like The Beatles, Clapton, Hendrix, Zeppelin...you know the music that influenced a generation and quite possibly paved the way for music to become what it has.
I consider myself nothing more then a humble studio musician, I don't play music for money or employment; however just for personal pleasure. I want to say I hide in my home studio to play my music, but that just makes it sound like I have a studio in my home when really its more like a home in my studio. My bedroom is setup to lay down guitar or bass tracks, the washroom is setup for recording lyrics (awesome reverb inside the glass shower) and the living room has an area to setup a drum kit along with all the associated recording electronics. I guess the pain of wanting to live in the "big city" has forced me to become crafty with all my space! Ok some of that might be exaggerated but really its a home within my studio at this point, almost time to move somewhere larger.
I am a hobbyist Luthier, I don't generally work on other peoples guitars unless they are a close friend in dire need, mostly because I am not a professional so there are something that I don't have a lot of experience doing. Most of this being repairs like broken headstocks and stuff like that, the trickier repairs; however I will always try if the person is willing. I build and do all the work to my own guitars, being very hands on and a DIYer this is a must for me as it allows me to point at my guitar and say "I did that" or "I made that" its an awesome feeling.
