As an instrument maker I love to built different and personal things. From wire strung harp to electrics guitars to harp guitars, I like to explore the different and new ideas. My influences are numerous, from the great Viennese school of guitar making, the Genova harp guitars, the golden era American guitar making.
Luthiers of the past like Scherzer, Mozzani, Gazzo, Orville Gibson, Larson brothers, Knutsen and Maccaferri, have a strong influence on my making and choices like floating necks on acoustic guitars, internal rods on bodies and shapes.
Present luthiers that I have been privilege to meet and exchange have as well a tremendous influence on my craft: Fred Carson, Jeffrey Elliott, Steve Klein, Kathy Wingert, Mike Doolin. To name a few.
