I am a solo instrumental acoustic guitarist. I play a mixture of classical/spanish, jazz, folk, pop, and blues to provide a classy ambience with elegant background music. I have up to 3 hours of material, half originals, and half covers consisting of jazz standards, classical/spanish compositions, and instrumental renditions of famous pop-tunes such as "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and "Favorite Things."
I have been playing guitar for over 15 years, and have appeared on local television (Arlington Independent Media Channel 69), local publications (Alexandria Gazette, On Tap Magazine), and played many diverse venues such as the Washington Convention Center, Gaylord Hotel (DC National Harbor), Lorien Hotel, Lee-Fendall Museum, Poplar Spring Spa & Resort, Harford Vineyard, and The Artful Gourmet.
To get an understanding of what my performance will be like if you hired me, please view my video "Video Collage - Sample Repertoire" on this site under the 'Media' tab, then under 'Videos' so you can know what to expect from me.
