Bio

As is often the life of a musician, I have worn many hats. From songwriter to singer to player to teacher to worship leader, my journey so far has been varied and full. I grew up singing in church and school and fell in love with all types of music from classical to top 40 to musical theater. I started playing guitar and piano because I wanted to accompany myself singing and I started writing because I wanted my very own songs to sing.

I went to the University of Alabama and studied classical music (and met my lovely opera singer wife, Olivia) and then went to Berklee College of Music to study what had become such a part of who I was – songwriting. I was honored to receive several awards while in Boston including the Vince Gill award and the BMI Foundation’s John Lennon award.

I spent almost six years in Nashville writing and learning the art of musical collaboration. I made an independent country album, “State I’m In,” and wrote in many genres including country, pop, rock, and contemporary Christian. As of Autumn 2008, I am in New York City soaking up the fabric that is already finding its way into my music. I’m excited to see what comes next.
