ameristos. musician. human.

I started playing piano at age five, lessons at six when I would play my older sister's lesson by ear. In grade five (approx. 9-10 years old), I started playing alto & tenor sax. By 14, I had my first guitar, left to me when my papaw passed away. In college, I studied and have a degree in guitar and jazz theory and continue learning anything I can today.

Over the years, I've added drums, clarinet, trumpet, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, upright bass and violin to the fold.


I was born in Dearborn, Michigan, and raised in the suburbs of Detroit, (sorta, called Westland). I now have come to appreciate the blue collar work-ethic that I picked up and conduct my life by today.

I have been in many, many shows, bands and groups. Check out my Past Projects for more info and media.


I'd consider myself a guitarist with a saxophonist's mentality. I adore scales and modes, but since I play in a lot of musical theater orchestra pit productions, I know my role isn't always to stand out. I firmly believe ego kills talent. I am a piece of the puzzle, and each piece is different and unique, but also need the other pieces to become whole.
