In 1977, I found a book in the library on making guitars, and it occurred to me: people, not machines, build guitars! I'd been playing from the time I was a kid and thought nothing could be better than to play a guitar that I'd made myself, so I decided to build one. Of course I never thought I would make another one after it! Since then I have studied the craft, built hundreds of guitars, and found an unexpected passion and career.
For almost 40 years I have specialized in the construction of nylon string guitars. My instruments have been played by many highly respected musicians, in many genres, including classical, jazz and contemporary. They have been played on numerous recordings and on many motion picture soundtracks including "Goodfellas," "The Straight Story," "Blade Runner," "Field of Dreams," "Godfather 3," "Seabiscuit," "The Mexican," "Cars," "Mr. and Mrs. Smith," "Ratatouille," "Tangled" and "Toy Story 3."
I was recently featured in this article in Acoustic Guitar.com
