I began playing drums when I was 8 years old, following in the footsteps of my older brother. At age 15, I concluded that I would like to be able to move around when playing music – (rather than being behind drums), so I began to play acoustic guitar. During this time, I developed a classical guitar style method (along with reading music), and worked heavily on picking patterns. When I was 18 years old, some friends and I formed a band - we had 3 guitar players (and no bass player, or anyone who would move to bass), so I decided to ‘take one for the band’, and move to bass guitar.
At 21, I had an opportunity to go on the road (as the band's bass player). We were signed with a label from Orange County, California, and traveled to many states in this great nation. During our 3 years of touring – we played on the same stage as Dove award winners, grammy award nominees, and a grammy award winner.
Later, I also learned to play keyboard. I have done studio work on multiple occasions and recorded two solo projects; (on YouTube videos, I will sometimes play a small part of my original acoustic pieces. I also incorporate my music in my Chord Confidence Series).
I live in Cajun Country Louisiana with my precious and beautiful wife, Maria, and our two dogs.
