ABOUT

Daddy was a preacher, Mama his pianist/organist who put me, her 3rd son, on the podium singing solos from the time I was about 6 years old. I took 2 years of actual Piano lessons, played percussion in 5th grade Band, Trumpet in 6th grade Band, returned to self-teaching Piano when I got braces in 8th grade. That year, I started taking voice lessons and sang in Choirs into my Freshman year in College. Sang/played in College Jazz band third year there, sang and won contests/awards in the US Army, including in Korea and at Ft Carson. Started a couple of Christian Bands here 30 years ago, but moved to GA after a few years. In my 40s, I had the startling revelation that I’m a Switchfoot Drummer & I started playing Guitar. Strongest on Vocals, followed by Keys, Drums, Guitar and Trumpet - don’t really consider myself an “Expert” on anything but haven’t yet figured out how to edit my first tragic pass with creating a Profile here - LOL! Currently, I’m a full time Student at UCCS, studying Digital Filmmaking with a minor in Music Technology.
