So it goes-Billy Joel
I collect piggy banks- including a UGA helmet bank signed by Herschel Walker.
I graduated from Furman University in 2018 with a double major in music and physics. I’m currently aspiring to be the first rockstar to play on the moon. I can often be found at my desk writing new music, or in my truck singing along with the soundtrack to Disney’s Hercules. The three words that best describe me are: passionate, empathetic, and ambitious.
I grew up in a very musical family, so it was never a question of would I play music but when would I play music. My mom is a singer, my father is a guitarist, so I’m both! I realized I wanted to be a songwriter in the 5th grade when I wrote a song for a crush and performed it for her (and the rest of my class) at recess on Valentine’s Day.
I teach guitar, bass and voice. I help lead student and adult bands.
My heroes are my parents. Besides encouraging my passion for music, I watched them live selflessly and lovingly my entire life. They raised me to be a man of integrity and courage by exemplifying these traits themselves.
