ABOUT

I want to play and write music with interesting, pleasant people. I live in Sugar Land, and married with 1 child. I am originally from Arkansas and my fulltime job is being an ER nurse. I play guitar with an emphasis on rhythm and melodies (not a shredder). I have a home studio (decent mics, preamps, compressors, eqs, and other hardware gear) but try not to focus on gear too much. I would like to be in a band with several talented people that are reasonable human beings with normal hang-ups and wildest addiction is maybe caffeine.
