141 Frontage Road


Age: 52

Background: “I started playing guitars after a freak motorcycle accident when I was about 13 years old.

One day, a friend of mine introduced me to Mike Corbin, a “phenomenal” guitar teacher from South Florida. I was not very excited and didn’t think he could help me much, but after my first lesson I was completely blown away and could not put my guitar down! After four years of lessons with Mike Corbin, I started playing at local shows and gigs. The best lesson that I’ve learned is that you should never give up. I now teach guitar, own a music store and play in the band Incognito. I moved to Pahrump in 2012.”

Years in business: “I have played music for more than 25 years.”

Personal: “I enjoy playing all kinds of music in my spare time from country to rock.”

Business climate: “I was inspired to open this store. I know the musicians here and I know so many people here.”

In Season: Look no further than goji berries for an exotic perennial edible that loves the heat

Every year in my garden, I strive to plant more and more edible perennials. The ability to plant once and have an increased harvest year after year makes perennials worth their weight in gold to me. Spending less time on maintenance allows for more time to devote to other chores on my little farm. The goji berry bush is one of my favorites in this class.
