My approach to guitar building is greatly influenced by my nature and experience as a scientist. I have an experimental approach based on the art of discovery and exploration. Like a good scientist I have studied the prior art of the masters, such as Torres, Hauser, Martin and many others both past and present. From this basis I've continued my own experiments in design while always being open to serendipitous discovery. As a result my guitars reflect my own personality and path of discovery making them uniquely mine. I have a holistic approach to building, recognizing the guitar is a complicated interdependent system, and that each guitar is built from unique natural materials.
To this end, my focus is to build unique tools for musicians that are sonically expressive and have great playability with simple, yet elegant visual aesthetics.
