ABOUT

I recently moved to Fort Worth from Nashville and am looking to join/start a group. I have 8+ years of gigging and recording experience but recently graduated with an engineering degree so haven't had the chance to play live as much as I would have liked the past few years. I am an experienced songwriter but also enjoy playing cover tunes, whatever gets me on stage with a guitar strapped on.

I have played a wide range of genres from blues, jazz, classic rock, hard rock and metal to bluegrass, country, and southern rock. I am definitely a blue-based player by default, but I love and am up for playing any range of genres, just ready to start playing live again.

Laid-back, timely, team-oriented musician that believes that music is meant to be enjoyed by players that like to have fun and serve the song. The attached audio samples are an example of some quick jamming I did to some stock backing tracks through GarageBand on iPhone.

I work full-time (8 am - 5:30 pm Mon - Thurs and every other Friday) but am committed to being available for rehearsals at night and gigging on the weekends. I also have experience as a session player while in Nashville, so feel free to reach out with any questions or inquiries regarding live or studio availability.

Contact Information: Feel free to email me with any questions. Email is my username at g mail
