About Me

Let’s Gather Together Through the Power of Music
Welcome, friends, to my website. I’m thrilled you’re here. I enjoy and am committed to the pursuit to inspire and reach folks with my music, for like a smile, it’s the universal language and it should be shared. 
Check out my acoustic renditions of many of your favorite tunes, inspired by a bluegrass, blues and rock-n-roll foundation. Many of my own originals await you as well. 


Quote:
“I love bringing people together to celebrate, reminisce, and even heal through the power of song and live performance.”


About me:
I wasn’t always a one man show. I’ve opened for famous bluegrass acts such as legendary banjoist JD Crowe and mandolinist Sam Bush with my Dayton, Ohio based bluegrass quartet, Sawgrass. Our name was inspired by Florida sawgrass and our experience at the Suwannee Music Festival there. We played for years gracing stages at countless festivals and well-known music venues throughout the Midwest and in Florida. 
My traditional bluegrass band prior to Sawgrass called Clark County was comprised of all Springfield, Ohio natives including myself. We traveled all the way to Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Oregon, Arizona, California and New Mexico. Clark County was even based on the outskirts of Fairbanks in the interior of Alaska for two years and that was something else. What beautiful people I encountered in these places. 
Chasing this dream of playing music has brought me many wonderful places. I find myself in Sunny Venice, Florida now and traveling to do shows outside of SW Florida and to Ohio occasionally. 
I truly have a deep passion for live performance and I hope you’ll join me at a future show or hire me for your next event.
