I have been actively playing music for around 15 years, with much of that time being spent in church settings. I discovered at an early age that I loved making music in church more than anywhere else. In my opinion, a musician can have no higher calling than to use their gifts to point people to Christ, and for most of my life God has been opening doors that allow me to do just that, both in and outside of church.
I first graduated from Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama with a major in Theology, and minor in Church Music. After that I immediately packed up and went to Sydney, Australia to attend Hillsong College as a post-grad program. I knew a traditional seminary wasn't the best choice for me, so I gave Hillsong College a shot. Long story short, it was a very fruitful and challenging season of life and I learned a lot about myself, my faith, and what it means to be a Christian musician in the world today. During that time I was given the privilege of sharing the stage with the likes of Matt Crocker, Taya Smith, Alex Pappas, Aodhan King, Melodie Wagner, Matt Hann, Jarryd Scully, and other world-class leaders and musicians. I do not say this to name drop or boast in myself, but to say that I was trusted with the opportunity to play alongside these amazing people, and in doing so have learned a lot along the way.
I currently live in Birmingham, Alabama where I am actively serving in a local church and work for a music company.

Influences & Inspiration
I grew up listening to Classic Rock and Metal, which is what influenced my early guitar playing. As time went on I started listening to more Country, Alternative, and Blues. My biggest influences to this day are guitarists such as Stuart Garrard (Delirious), Nigel Hendroff (Hillsong Worship), Grant Klassen (Hillsong Worship), Dave Keauning (The Killers), and Drew Shirley (Switchfoot).
At least three sources of reliable power.
I DO NOT have my own sound system, so if you are interested in hiring me to play social events, I require a sound system.
