I majored in music at Benedict College and graduated with a B.A. degree with honors in the performing arts. I am the very proud recipient of a Michael Jackson music scholarship awarded to me through the UNCF in the late 80’s. One of the first songs I plan to upload will be a jazz tribute to MJ who will always be my favorite musical performer. My Dad is a minister/gospel singer and is my first musical influence. I am a member in good standing with Phi Mu Alpha music fraternity. I was in the U.S. Air Force from 1988-1992 and received an honorable discharge. I prefer to write Jazz but I like to sing, play, and write in other styles. I have been influenced by several musical artists over the years, too many to name. I was also in the drama club while in college so I have some acting experience as well. I have sung spirituals, show music, but my forte in college was Italian opera, and I participated in a few jam sessions with my music instructors. Early on I explored in primarily pop and movie theme music. I was in the Air Force in the 1990's and while stationed in Alaska took a Jazz theory course, sung with a jazz ensemble, and really became hooked on Jazz. I took courses through the Columbia School of Broadcasting and interned at radio station Wkbyr in Anchorage, Alaska. Now I primarily write Jazz music sometimes mixed with another genre, but I also write a little hip hop, pop, blues, theme music, video game music, dance music, and gospel. I enjoy all types of music and styles and have also been influenced by several artists. I try to write "feel good" music and most of my jazz music may be used for meditation, relaxation, and music therapy. I can be reached by phone at 803.237.2241. When people hear my music I want them to experience a good feeling about what they heard and listen to my songs over and over again! I try to write music which can be utilized for meditation and healing of the mind, body, and spirit. I hope my music will uplift the spirits of all who listens. My music may be downloaded at Broadjam.com. It is an honor and blessing to be able to share my music with the world. I plan to release my first Jazz CD real soon with a special tribute to MJ (Pop King) and his surviving family on the first track. Stay tuned!

I am currently in the recording studio working on a Jazz Modern/ Alternative CD.
Some of the songs that I am recording are titled Bluemoon, Eclipse, Sunrise, Sunset, Tears of Joy, Kinectic, and Life to name a few. Most of my songs are good for meditation and aerobic exercise lasting between 5 to 8 minutes.
