Bio:  I was born at North Shore Community Hospital, Long Island, New York in 1978. I have lived in Flushing, Long Island, New York 'till I was about 2. I have also lived in Uniondale for a little bit, but have lived in West Hempstead from pretty much 2 onward. As a kid I played clarinet for a little while but I started playing guitar around 1991/1992 at about age 13/14. I went to West Hempstead High and Stony Brook University. After graduating I lived in Sweden with my ex-girlfriend for about 7 years during which I studied Lutherie. Unfortunately, our relationship didn't work out. I have recently moved back home to Long Island and am really working hard musically. I'm currently in a country band called Night Writer and we are working on an album.
