Since 2001 I've been making a living as a full time, fingerstyle guitarist. Being a musician in central Ohio isn't quite the same as being studio player in Nashville, New York or Los Angeles but there are plenty of interesting people, places and situations related to this type of work...or should I say "play". After all we "play" music not "work" it. Being a musician in a non-major-music-hub is a combination of plate spinning (gigs), cat juggling (private and group lessons) and chipmunk herding (running a weekly jam session).
Add to that being part of the Artist-in-Residence program at Riverside Methodist Hospital. Every week I get to bring live music to the halls and bedsides of oncology patients. This is an amazing experience. It is a continuous blessing to see how music touches, helps and comforts people in extremely difficult situations.
