I am a professional musician and guitar teacher living in the southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island area. I am a graduate in Political Science from Roger Williams University. I am proficient in music composition, theory, history and performance. With respect to Political Science and Social Studies, I am proficient in American and European history, civics, American political science, international relations, international law and U.S. national security. I have several years of experience tutoring students from the elementary to college level. I also have several adult music students! I also have experience with autistic children.

I live in Taunton, MA and have been playing guitar for fourteen years. I enjoy playing various styles such as rock, pop, blues, funk & jazz but enjoy teaching students any style they want to learn. I have performed with members of the bands Chicago, J. Geils and the John Fogarty Band. I freelance around the New England area performing with a variety of acts including singer-songwriters, tribute bands and general business bands. My experience in the social sciences includes my undergraduate education (US national security, international law, environmental politics, Russian & Chinese policy, etc...), National Political Science Honors Society, Model UN and Arab League conventions and several positions with local and national political campaigns.
