Bio

Originally from Tallahassee, Florida. Also called Alabama, Georgia, and Nashville home at time. Now Los Angeles is home.

Piano is my main instrument, though I play rhythm guitar. I attempt from time to time to play bass, and I dabble with the violin.

My adventures in music: I fell in love with my toy piano as a toddler and started taking piano lessons when I started school. I participated in various classical competitions growing up and accompanied the organist at church during high school. I received an acoustic guitar for Christmas at 12 and I taught myself to play.

I discovered in my late teens that I could do more with my love of music than just teach. At that time I began playing keys in the Wallace State Jazz band, in of all places, Hanceville, Alabama (thank you Robert Bean). I went on to study music theory and composition at Middle Tennessee State University and received my bachelor's degree in Recording Industry Management. Yes, there is such a degree.

My brother is responsible for most of my musical sound. He is the one who introduced me to the Beatles as a kid, and made sure that my exposure to incredible music continued through the years. I will always be thankful to my big brother.

I've been in bands through the years, but none of them are important enough to mention. From time to time I miss being on stage; but hey, who doesn't?

I'm giving it my all to try to make a living with licensing my music. Any music supervisors who are interested in my music, please note that I am willing to write/compose upon request.
