I live in East Nashville and have converted one of my bedrooms into a small studio to write songs and record tracks. I’ve had the opportunity to live everywhere from Florida, NYC, Los Angeles, DC, and near Philadelphia. I have had a major label record deal myself with Atlantic Records, as well as have played for and toured internationally with artists such as Jessie James Decker, Secondhand Serenade, and Teddy Geiger. I have had the opportunity of writing with some amazing writers in town (Leslie Satcher, Danny Myrick, Jim Collins, Rob Crosby, and others). My goal is to make music my profession for the rest of my life.
