I’m  originally from Mystic, CT now residing in green leafy areas of Virginia. I build computers, guitars, basses, arcade machines and I also do some brewing, cooking and gardening. I’ve been an avid gamer since the days of the Atari 2600 and my first PC was the astounding Timex Sinclair. I do freelance writing and in the past I reviewed PC games on IGN’s former site RPGVault. My love of video games is clearly obvious in my arcade, computer and guitar builds.

Some people from my hometown might remember me during the early nineties as the bass player and vocalist for the band Adams Onis in Southeastern, CT.  I quit playing music altogether (even privately) for about fourteen years but the excitement of building a guitar from scratch rekindled my musical fire.  I’ve been playing seven string guitar for three years now and I hope to release an EP at some point in the future. I consider the “theme” guitars I build much more than novelties, they are indeed weapons of pure tonal devastation utilizing a variety of wood species and boutique pickups.
