Born in 1974, I currently live in central Ohio with my lovely wife, Jen and our 3 daughters. I am hoping to move to warmer weather soon, I have been in music since I was about 8. I learned to play trumpet and other brass instruments through high school, which really helped me appreciate different skills and sounds. In college, I got my first acoustic guitar and learned to play a lot of folk, rock, blues and other mountain music. Later in life, my wife encouraged me back to orchestra and purchased a keyboard for me to get back to my music roots. The rest is history and I'm lovin the growth and experience . . .
