Born and raised in Grand Prairie, TX. Was always drawn to music. Mom and dad both played. I remember my first turntable, it only played 45’s. I nearly destroyed that thing trying to learn songs like Classical Gas by Mason Williams, Cat’s in the Cradle by Harry Chapin, the riff to Hendrix’s Purple Haze and lots of others. Went to The University of North Texas in Denton for guitar and vocal performance and also Cedar Valley College in Dallas for their audio engineering program. Dropped out of both though. Toured a good bit of the U.S. all through the nineties with my trio, The Undulating Band. We made several recordings, won some awards, saw some beautiful places and played with tons of talented people along the way. Best time ever!
Currently I keep a busy schedule with live performances, songwriting, making videos and playing private events. Shows can vary from me as a solo act to my eight piece band and various configurations in-between. My core five piece is probably the most common. We play events as an original band showcasing my own material and we also work as a party band with a song list that spans seventy years. We play everything from Sinatra to Van Halen to George Strait to Dua Lipa.
I try to keep an element of service in my schedule by regularly playing for our Nation’s Vets, assisted living centers, serving on the Fundraising Committee of the Ronald McDonald House Fort Worth and playing at my local church. I currently live in the beautiful city of Fort Worth, TX with my wife who is a medical illustrator and we have four kids.
