I am a professional musician and a songwriter based in Los Angeles, California. I play the guitar and the bass.
I studied classical guitar from age 10 and started playing professionally at 14 as a bass player.
I grew up in Prague, Czech Republic, lived in Hamburg, Germany before emigrating to the USA. Since then I have lived and played music in San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Hawaii and Nashville. Some time ago I went back to Europe and spent a couple of years gigging in Nice, France, one of my favorite places in the world!
I write songs, had a hit called No Podras many moons ago… I wrote the music, Alejandro Zepeda the lyrics. The singer was Cristian Castro, an artist from Mexico.
In 2016 I won first place in the rhythm guitar category of Lee Ritenour's Six String Theory Competition with my arrangement and solo guitar performance of the Beatles “Here, There and Everywhere” and “Elizete” by Clare Fisher.
I love the acoustic guitar, nylon string first and foremost. For years I was a professional bass player but the guitar has always been my first love, especially as a solo instrument. It is an amazing self contained little orchestra that will forever challenge you...
