My journey into the world of guitar building began at a young age. For as long as I can remember I’ve been fascinated with the creation of objects, be they clay, cloth, plastic or wood. As long as they require dexterity, patience and offer a creative outlet, I’m in! When I finished school, I applied to the Galloup School of Lutherie, where I had my first real introduction to the craft of guitar-building. Afterwards, I got a job working for the preeminent electric builder in New York, Roger Sadowsky, where over seven and a half years I honed my craft. After many years of making my own steel string guitars in the after-hours I decided to make another change. I applied for and was accepted as an apprentice of Ervin Somogyi. Ervin represents the pinnacle of the craft that I’m so in love with and with much excitement I relocated to the east bay to pursue my dream of learning from the best.
