About Me

My love for music began before I can even remember. When I was four years old, my father gave me his trumpet from his childhood, which I played throughout my own childhood and high school. My father not only gave me this trumpet, but he also taught me about music and harmonies, and his talent for songwriting. He and his father along with my uncles when together would sing hymns  in five-part harmony, which accounts for many wonderful memories. When I was 12 years old, my father took me to a local studio in Drasco, Arkansas, where he was recording a demo of some of his own material. Immediately, there was a new spark, and I realized that it wasn't just a love for music, but an appreciation and interest in what happens behind the scenes that was more intriguing to me.  

Following high school, I continued to nurture my love for music and started an acapella singing group with some friends. We recorded our first album at "John's Studio" in Russellville, Arkansas, and then when it came time to record our second album, I decided that I wanted to record it myself. My father and I built a small studio for overdubs and mixing. The studio consisted of a Digi002 and Protools, neither of which had I received formal training. Following completion of the second album, I attended a Protools certification class in Nashville, Tennessee, and upon return I recorded and co-produced two full-length country albums and completed other various projects. Several years later, I had the opportunity to transfer to the Nashville, Tennessee, area where I attended SAE and received my Associate's degree in audio technology. 

Upon graduation from SAE, I returned to Little Rock, Arkansas, where my father and I remodeled the studio to accomodate a full band. I have recorded and edited all genres of music, including rock, rap, country, pop, and jazz.
