However, when he discovered the guitar at age 12, it quickly became his instrument of choice above all others. He then received formal training at San Francisco State University in the classical,  jazz, pop and world music programs, and earned a Bachelor Of Arts degree with coursework in audio production. 

In the Nineties, he explored the SF Bay Area club scene primarily as a solo singer/songwriter and founding member of the alternative band Tinman.
