I am a 33-year-old jazz musician, who enjoys composing music of any and all kinds...but most particularly jazz music. It really is my life source. I love to play jazz whenever I get the chance, and everything that surrounds it.
I have a B.A in Music from the University of Alabama and an M.M. in Jazz Arranging from the University of Alabama.
I currently have over 200 original compositions to my pen.
I have been a Jazz DJ with a specialty jazz show that lasted for 8 months.
I am a columnist for: ALL ABOUT JAZZ (Building a Jazz Library) (http://www.allaboutjazz.com)
JAZZ REVIEW (CD Reviews and Jazz Quiz Editor) (http://www.jazzreview.com)
THE CITY MAGAZINE OF TUSCALOOSA
THE PLANET WEEKLY
I am also the originator / director / conductor / transcriber / arranger / public relations / webmaster / performer for the two ZORNOGRAPHY: The Music of John Zorn projects that were held in Tuscaloosa in November of 2003 and 2004. (http://www.zornography.freehomepage.com)

My current projects include: a classic jazz fusion quartet named ELECTRIC MAYHEM a traditional jazz quartet led by drummer TOM RISHER a traditional jazz quartet specifically for restaurants called the NEW AMBIENCE JAZZ QUARTET the delectable, savory sounds of GNAWED-OFF SHOTGUN, and I am also part of the NATHAN HOLAWAY TRIO which performs at many restaurants and features enjoyable standards along with many original compositions of my own.
