Caption: Here I am (center), with Tim Pershing (left) and Greg Gagliano (right) of 20th Century Guitar Magazine.
Boy, I suck. You'd think that I could at least put some interesting and updated material in here. And so this is brief.

I'm Executive Vice President of BBE Sound, which, as you know, G&L has been a part of since '91 following Leo's death. Apart from being a major guitarhead, I'm a major motorhead. I love cars, high performance ones in particular.

I've got a wife and son and live in Orange CA, not far from the G&L factory in Fullerton.
