He has developed a reputation as an extremely versatile musician, having professional credits as a guitarist, bassist, keyboardist, singer, arranger, engineer, and producer. As a performer he has become known for his meticulous attention to tone and feel, backed by a crushing technique. His music is a stream of consciousness melding of Jazz, Fusion, Blues, Metal, Progressive, and Ambient textures, with plenty of guitar pyrotechnics on display.
