Bio

-I have been playing music since I was seven years old. A total of twenty two years of playing.
- I have been playing professionally since I was twelve, starting with wedding gigs and corporate events.
- After graduating high school, I auditioned at Full Sail University and joined the group BWT, and performed with them on the schools live stage and recorded a full length original album in many of their recording studio facilities! {this was a trip!}
- When I turned nineteen I moved to Los Angeles to join touring group Turbulence. We played all the great venues on Sunset Blvd. such as “The Whiskey A Go-Go” and “The Roxy.” I also did session guitar work for Atlantic Records. This was my first experience of the industry and how record companies operate!
- I have played and performed in many original bands since moving back to Fl in 2004. I was in working cover bands in central FL from 2004 - 2016.
- My first solo album was originally released on Steve Vai's Favored Nations label and my music is available on over 100 digital retailers. This was my first time experiencing my own original music being on a label with management and understanding royalties, publishing, and distribution deals.
- Between live performances {4 - 5 a week} I was teaching at music schools such as School Of Rock. One on one lessons, groups lessons, all ages, all levels, all different personalities. I also ran the performance groups and coached a dozen kids at once on musical projects and performances for live shows.
- My second album, Multiverse Collision was released May 2015, on my own label. I have a distribution deal with Alliance Entertainment and Cd Baby for both albums, which also included a publishing deal for both my albums with ASCAP. I record, produce, engineer, and perform most of the instruments on my albums.
- After the release of my second album, I got featured in "Music Connection Magazine "{Oct. 2015}, "Fireworks UK Mazagazine" {Sep. 2015}, and "Jamsphere Magazine" {Dec 2015}, all of which gave great reviews of my album and playing.
- I'm currently in Nashville TN to further my career as a performing musician, studio/ session guitarist in the music capitol of the world! So far I have been able to perform with acts at legendary famous clubs downtown on Broadway, such as Second Fiddle, and Bourban Street Blues.
