A little bit about me:
I was born and raised in South Davis County, Utah in a family that pushed me to seek out what I cared about. My biggest passion in life is the arts. I am also a diehard fan of Utah State Athletics and I am incredibly proud to hold a degree proving that I'm an Aggie. I grew up up playing football and basketball gaining more than a few bumps, bruises along the way.
After high school I attended Utah State University in Logan, UT. While there I discovered that music allowed me to reach out to others and enrich lives. After dropping out to work and to serve a religious service mission in California, I got serious about making a career in music. While I love to perform, I also love to teach. I received my Bachelors of Music with an emphasis in Guitar Education from USU in 2014. During my time as a student in Logan I was employed by the university to teach fellow university students for credit. Additionally, I taught many music students including some guitar majors.
Over the years I've been blessed to have worked with amazing musicians. I had many guitar teachers who instilled a love of rock music, interesting sounds and ripping guitar solos. My private instruction has come from renowned musicians Michael Dowdle, Mike Christiansen, and Corey Christiansen, all of whom have made a lasting impression on me as a player and a person.
I have performed in numerous bands, collaborated with various singer/songwriters and recorded on a number of studio albums. I'm currently performing with SLC-based party bands Melissa & The Beat, and The Current. I love being able to bring an edge to their music and I really value my time spent with brilliant musicians. I also have another project, Testing Fences in which I collaborate with my buddies in North Salt Lake.
In my free time and in addition to musical endeavors I enjoy running and playing/watching sports. Time spent with friends is valuable to me and I love sharing experiences with them. When things manage to calm down I also love to read. I'm a big fan of going to the movies although I'm equally comfortable out in the wild somewhere.
