My career in music began when I was 11 years old. I started playing trumpet and continued for 7 years. I began playing guitar at 14 and have been playing for 12 years. In 2008 I graduated from Morehead State University with a Bachelor of Music and in 2010 from The University Of The Arts in Philadelphia, PA, with a Masters degree in Jazz Studies.
I have had the opportunity of studying under several great teachers including Ray Ross, Glenn Ginn, Gordon Towell, Steven Snyder, Tom Giacabetti, Mike Kennedy, Ben Schachter, Don Glanden, Richard Lawn, Jimmy Bruno, and Pat Martino.
After finishing college I moved to Cincinnati, Ohio, and began performing as a solo jazz guitarist
