I was born in Front Royal, Virginia and raised just south of Atlanta, Georgia. Music moved me to dance and sing at a very young age--I am indeed the family ham!
I wrote and recorded my first official album in 2004 called "I Am", which enabled me to tour the country opening for bands such as: Maroon5, Dave Mathews Band, Hanson, Blues Traveler, OAR, Gavin Degraw and many others. My music has been featured in several TV shows and movies --> "Scrubs", "One Tree Hill", "Sopranos", "Life As We Know It" among others. I had the privilege of writing music for HBO and several Hilton commercial campaigns including the 2008 Olympics, where they used my song "Speed Feels Better".
I learned piano around age 10 and guitar around 18 --- I wrote songs every several years when falling for a girl prevented me from sleeping. My favorite form of writing is in the moment... many call freestyling-- it's a mind bending rollercoaster that ignites my mind, body, and spirit....and seems to do the same for the audience 🙂
I released my new album, "Eleven" May 4th 2015 --> eleven years to the day since "I Am". I wrote and produced this one ... quite an epic undertaking and learning experience. I'm excited to be touring again and continuing my journey with one mission- to ignite the human spirit in myself and others thru music.
