Born and raised in Arkansas, I began my journey as a musician at the age of 6 when I began studying piano. I grew up playing for both my local church and school choirs. When I graduated high school I attended Arkansas State University where I obtained my undergraduate degree in piano performance and pedagogy. While at ASU I met my (now) wife and when we married I moved to Benton, AR. I furthered my education at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and obtained my Master in Education with an emphasis in Music Education.

My wife and I have a son who is the light of our lives and is constantly challenging us to grow! My wife teaches junior high art in Benton and I hold the currently hold the position of 7th grade choral director at the North Little Rock Middle School.
