I started playing trombone at the age of 11 in Conway, AR back in 2000 and eventually moved to Flower Mound, TX for high school in 2003 and eventually went off to college at the University of Central Arkansas to minor in music & received a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Digital Filmmaking in 2011. After graduation, I moved to Nashville, TN to try to start my career in the film industry but eventually wound up with a corporate job in the mail room of a major healthcare company & eventually worked my way into other healthcare companies around Nashville and ended up in IT.
I currently live in Murfreesboro, TN and work for the talent/booking agency William Morris Endeavor as an IT Support Engineer in downtown Nashville and play trombone as a side gig in a multitude of Nashville ensembles as well as shooting video part-time for the Brentwood Baptist Church & also do freelance video work around the Nashville area. I currently play with the Brentwood Baptist Church orchestra and have since 2013 & also gig with all types of corporate/wedding bands as well as jazz/funk bands all around the southeast region from Ohio over to Kentucky & Tennessee down to Georgia.
