Bio:
I grew up in Cambridge/Boston, MA at the end of the folk era and was exposed to many different musical cultures. I was also exposed to whatever state-of-the-art audio equipment was available during that time by working in some "high-end" stereo shops after school and playing at local coffee houses in the evening; including the original "Club 47" in MA, and "The Bitter End" and "The Village Gate" in NY.

I continued a very eclectic lifestyle that now included an electrical engineering degree, music theory and multi-style guitar playing ranging from Folk/Blues to Classical/Flamenco.

This all culminated into studies at The American Institute of Guitar in New York City under Dennis Kosster - a protégée of flamenco giants Sabicas and Mario Escudero.

Playing many different guitar and banjo styles opened the door to the pro audio/movie -film industry. While on staff in recording studios in Fairfield County Connecticut and Westchester County New York over the next fifteen years, I was chief recording engineer and resident studio musician. I recorded and mixed audio for Film and Video and Radio/TV ads, and composed many original music scores for them.

In 1996, I started Thor Audio- a high-end audio design and manufacturing company. (www.ThorAudio.com)

I bought a large number of new instruments in 2005 (including three new Martins)

I have recorded TWO CDs FOR CHARITY in my new recording studio.
One CD is for Katrina Relief through RedCross.org (and is shipping) and the other one is for folk singer Travis Edmonson (of "Bud & Travis") to aid in his battle with Parkinson's disease. This CD will be finished by mid August.
