Classical and Flamenco Guitar

teacher and performER

Welcome to my website!

I am a classical and flamenco guitarist from Richmond, Virginia (USA) currently living in Seville, Spain. In Richmond, I taught private lessons and performed as a soloist and in the ensembles Fado Nosso (Portuguese Fado music), Sueños Gitanos (flamenco-inspired), and the Richmond Guitar Quartet (classical guitar).  In 2013, I moved to Seville to pursue flamenco guitar professionally.  I currently study cante and baile accompaniment in the Fundación Cristina Heeren and teach private guitar lessons to students in Seville and guitar lessons via Skype to students anywhere in the world.

VCU's Flamenco Festival V

Thanks to all the Richmond, VA flamenco enthusiasts who came out to Virginia Commonwealth University's Flamenco Festival V, March 20-22nd, 2015!

The festival featured performances by Washington D.C. guitarists Torcuato Zamora and Miguelito, a master class by Miguelito, and a concert by RVA flamenco musicians Denver Walker, Ian Browning, Clarke Hedgepath, Mary Lawrence Hicks, and myself.  We had around five hundred guests attend the concerts and master class, and we are looking forward to planning the next festival for November 2016.

In March 2013, I launched my Kickstarter Project Guitarra Flamenca to fund one year of flamenco study and composition in Seville, Spain. Thanks to over 200 backers, the project was successful, and that one year has turned into an indefinite stay in Seville and full-time pursuit of flamenco. 


One of Guitarra Flamenca's main projects and backer rewards was to record an album of flamenco music that I learned and composed during my first year in Seville.  I recorded this album in summer 2014 with singer Daniel Azcarate, trumpet player Mary Lawrence Hicks, and percussionist Ian Browning. "Albores" was released in March exclusively to Guitarra Flamenca backers.  Listen to clips from the album here!
