A strong background in commercial music,
two years (2) performing musical theatre at Sinclair College,
three (3) years performing in the Holland America Line Cruise ship Industry, over ten (10) years Contemporary Church music,
and one year with America Entertainment Productions (AEP),
these musical experiences are part of my performance background.
Performing with Samantha Carlson (Jazz) and Kelsey Mira (Pop/Rock/Jazz) add to performance background. In 2018, I have performed two musicals, “Tarzan” (N. Columbus, OH) and “Wizard of Oz” (three sub. days at CoveDale Theatre, in Cincinnati, OH). Other Jam places over the past few years have been at Park St. Tavern (Columbus, OH) and Jazz Central (Dayton, OH).
My education started at Wright State, then transferred to Belmont University to finish Bachelor’s degree (Commercial Music w/Percussion performance degree). Before doing the Cruise ship gig, I went to University of Dayton and Eastman School of music for Graduate study, earning credits transferring to Eastern Kentucky University,
where I finished a Master’s degree (M. M.) in General Music.
I am currently working on MM in Jazz at
the University of Arkansas @ Monticello.
