ABOUT

Been playing music since I was little. My primary instrument is guitar, which I've played for 20+ years. I've got a lot of performance experience with praise bands, jazz bands, coffee house gigs, and some gigs in Nashville as a lead guitar for a friend, and obviously the high school jam band. I've also done some recording at Ardent Studios and several projects for folks at their home studios. I've taught lessons for 15+ years.

Electric bass is a secondary instruments. I have a music degree from Tennessee Tech, where I studied trumpet and played bass for the jazz bands. I've also got a lot of performance experience with bass through all the jazz gigs, big bands, pit orchestras, and worship bands.

I've got a solid theory foundation and lots of experience. I'm a good sub-in.

I play electric guitar weekly at church. I play a few gigs a year down in Hernando with a friend.
