Biography

I've got years of experience as a professional guitar player, both as a performer and a composer/arranger. I work with a plethora of authors, songwriters and musicians in studios (already 5 albums under the belt) as well as on stage. Having lived and studied abroad for many years, I have gained international experience and I am confident in several musical languages. For more info, scroll down and check my portfolio out.
