Born and raised in Los Angeles, California Curtis is now 23. For the last year, he has been playing with the Las Vegas Show "Recycled Percussion", both in Vegas and on tour. He has also played for various local acts in LA, most notably, his original band Please Don't Shoot! Performing at venues such as The Whiskey A Go Go, and the Viper Room. And now plays guitar for YouTube sensation Drew Tabor. Curtis started playing guitar at the age of 14, and quickly developed an affinity for classic rock, especially the music of the 80s. After being exposed to the virtuosic playing of guitarists such as Eddie Van Halen, Yngwie Malmsteen, and Paul Gilbert, his discipline on the instrument became his only priority, spending up to 10 hours a day practicing. After spending time developing his sound and technique Curtis found his true passion in live performance, and is always hungry for the stage. Today he continues to perform, and as of this writing has played over 150 shows in the last year. Curtis is currently endorsed by Mojohand FX, Xotic USA, Walrus Audio Effects, and Buddy Blaze Guitars.
