He was given the nickname "Jesus" by Lady Gaga while playing lead guitar on the Monster Ball Tour and working on the Born This Way album.

In addition to work with Lady Gaga he has worked with many bands, singer songwriters and producers including Nile Rodgers, Danielia Cotton, Sophie B. Hawkins and others.
Working with guitarists from beginning children to advanced adult levels, he focuses on the development of each player's own unique sound and style with a focus on pop/rock styles.

While working on the development of technical ability, he also encourages the development of each musician as an individual artist and performer.
