Originally from Griffin, GA. Picked up the guitar at 13 years old and after playing for a year joined a band. By 18 years old I was touring the southern states as a lead guitarist and backup singer. At 21, I moved to Nashville to continue touring with several bands and for several solo artists. At this time, I also started to take writing my own music seriously and recorded my first EP titled "In The Making". Shortly after turning 24, I moved to Los Angeles to focus on becoming a solo artist. In 2005, I recorded my first full length album "Play Along". Since 2005, I have found home here in California and have been making my own albums as well as performing and recording music full time. I am blessed to have the opportunity to pursue my dreams and passions and make a living at it. Checkout my music on iTunes, Pandora Radio, & Youtube.
