About Me



I'm passionate about my writing and recording, it's what I do.

It's my life's passion to express those emotions and feelings from my soul and spirit that can only be conveyed through music.  My music express's everything from the heights of life's joy to the depths of man's pain, and Gods presence with us in all of life's situations. It's how my spirit takes wing. I hope that my music does the same for your spirit, too.

​Inspiration, That's how it all began.

At the age of ten I was riding through downtown Atlanta Georgia in the backseat of my Father and Mothers blue and white 1955 Chevy Belair. My Dads favorite country music radio station was playing a fast song when the lead guitarist played an astonishing solo that reached inside me and really shook me. I threw myself backwards into my seat and when it was over I said to my Mom and Dad " I want to do that".

"That" is what I've been striving to do ever since, making music that touches others.



For  decades past I've refined my technique and musicianship. The result of my labors is a long string of successful performances, recording sessions, both group and independent releases, along with audience and critical acclaim. 

 "Your passion and love for others is what will connect, your passion and love for what you do is what relates.

Vision is seeing the result of the two combined"
