ABOUT

I work mornings on WPSM 91.1 in Fort Walton Beach and shoot video on the side (weddings, music videos, documentaries etc.) I also play in BeachMice and with Jacob Mohr. The Jacob Mohr band plays at Margaritavilles in Destin. I played bass for Nashville Star finalist David St. Romain ( 3rd Place ) . I toured with him for about 2 or so years before moving back home from Nashville TN. I also played in a band called Commom Children from 92-2000. Near the end of that I played bass for Pete Stewart ( grammatrain) and went to Germany, Holland, and New Zealand as well as all over the U.S. After David St. Romain finished his Nashville Star tour,I played a lot more shows with him. I want to play as much as I can and continue writing. Rock on my friend. Oh yes, how could I forget, I played in a band called the Rugs, in Nashville and enjoyed that tremendously. ( the Rugs-Suez Canal ) I'm also playing in a band called The Scratchtones. ( Scott Rockwood's band ) You can find us on FB.
