I picked up my first guitar at the age of 8. I played all kinds of venues as a teen and young adult in the New York City area. One day I got on a Grey Hound with my guitar and headed west. I found several jobs along the way such as mechanic, welder, sales person and pro boxer. I always found time to play music at night with my band. I was asked to open for Johnny Winter by a good friend of mine who knew I can always play and never turn down a good gig. Wow, open for Johnny with thousands of fans, what a thrill. My favorite things to do is write, play music and of course, film acting. I recently produced, co wrote and starred in a short film called "JIMMY KENDRICK", set for release in October 2017.  It's been a fun and exciting journey so far.
