ABOUT

I want to play some Rock N' Roll all over the world with some cats that are motivated, hungry, have great work ethics, and are out to move and inspire people.

I've been playing music for almost 20 years and have studied at the Fine Arts Center in Greenville, SC, Berklee College of Music and have a Bachelor of Music in Guitar from Winthrop University as well as a Master of Music in Jazz Studies from the University of South Carolina. Additionally, I have been a guitarist for the Army National Guard Band for over 9 years.
