BIO

A little about my musical background.

My career began at 14 when my father taught me my first tune on the guitar at our annual family beach vacation.

Who'd have thought?

My professional instruction followed with Dr. Andrew Zohn at the Schwob School of Music in Columbus, GA. (USA) where I graduated with a B.M. in Performance in 2012. From September of that year until 2017, I attended the Conservatorio della Svizzera italiana in Lugano, Switzerland where I studied with Lorenzo Micheli, ultimately completing a Formazione Continua (Artist Diploma), a M.M. in Performance and, an M.M. in Pedagogy. In tandem with these pursuits, I studied composition privately with Angelo Gilardino in Vercelli, Italy for close to two years. 


Currently I head the music theory and guitar departments at Doha College in Doha, Qatar, and am working towards my Ph.D. at Middlesex University under the direction of Drs. Benjamin Dwyer and John Dack where I'm researching the development of dodecaphonic composition in post-war Italy.
