It’s costume season again! Last year I was asked to outfit a group of friends with weapons for their Roman god costumes. It was a lot of fun and a huge success. They all loved the weapons so much, they asked me to do it again this year for their barbarian/viking theme. I gladly accepted […]

My journey with guitars started when I was 15.  I, of course, wanted to be a rock star. I already had some musical training, starting with piano at age 6, and moving to saxophone in middle school.  I never got excited about these instruments like I did the guitar though.  I taught myself how to play […]
