I grew up in a family of musicians. Everyone plays an instrument and my dad is a community band director in Ohio. My trombone has been a part of all of my greatest experiences. I started playing on the street when I was in high school and continued through college at Alabama State College and Georgia State University.. My trombone has gotten me on a rooftop in Times Square on New Years Eve, on stage with Jay-Z, across Europe and back, and the best thing....my wife's hand in marriage. Atlanta has become my home for the last 7 years. Working on the street everyday, I have learned a great deal about the city's history, culture, politics, and landscape. I love talking to tourists and exchanging stories. Travelling is a bonus, playing trombone is my livelihood, but sharing my knowledge and experiences is my life.
