Lead Guitarist-Singer Songwriter-Audio Engineer


Finding my Passion

I grew up in Lake Jackson, Texas and always thought and dreamed in sound, rhythm, and beats. My love for music developed playing trumpet during my Jr. High years but my  first guitar lesson with my sister really fired my passion. From that point on, I was involved in Marching Band, Jazz Band, and eventually audio engineering and song writing. I learned to play the keyboard in my spare time.  

Living and Growing Passion

On the road with NET Ministries for three years I was a youth minister to Jr. High and High School youth all over the USA.  After two years of Audio Engineering and Music and two years of Theology I graduated from two colleges with an Associates degree in Catechetics and Technical certificates in Music Recording and Music Business. After two years as a College Youth Minister in Florida I returned to my roots in Houston, TX. I write my lyrics and produce my songs in my home studio. I love collaborating with other artists and experimenting with different genres of music.

Be Inspired By Everything

I find inspiration all around me.  I try to make my music representative of myself and my generation but I am a serious student of all genres going back to the origins of Jazz and Blues to the greatest generation of Rock and Roll and Country Western. I love  music and all the places it is taking me.
