About Me

For the past several years, I've worked for C. B. Gitty Crafter Supply, the world's largest supplier of parts and online resources for building cigar box guitars. You may have landed on this page looking for cigar box guitar tablature or because you watched one of my cigar box guitar (CBG) how-to videos on YouTube.

No matter how or why you came here, I'd glad you did.

Sobriety & Cigar Box Guitars 

I fell into the CBG world while getting sober. Building and playing musical instruments from things never intended to make music** served as the perfect vehicle to escape substance abuse and explore my creative side. Without CBGs, it's hard to say how I would've learned acceptance, gratitude, and humility, keys to living sober and to living a healthy, meaningful life.

More Than Just CBGs

What brings meaning to my life is always changing and continues to shape it for the better. I still work in the CBG world, creating how-to-build and how-to-play resources for new and old CBG enthusiasts, among other things. Over the past several years, I've also fallen in love with writing, learning to live with empathy and compassion, exploring music and spirituality, and immersing myself in martial arts.
