GUITARS, VOCALS

If you take one part, "running off to see Metallica at 15 years old" and mix it with one part "disenchanted college-freshman blues" and add that to the realization that playing guitar was, in fact, the only thing my father could not do...

I was hungry from the start; I began taking lessons from Craig Wilson at Buddy Rogers, then vocal lessons at Toedtman School of Music, a Classical Guitar class at CCM and, of course, learning as many covers and writing as many originals as I could along the way.

I've been in many outfits; bands that have opened for Linkin Park, Atreyu, Chris Cornell, Hawthorne Heights and while living between San Francisco and Los Angeles I toured with a Pink Floyd tribute band, House of Floyd. Now, with Lift the Medium, we're rocking some of the best material and alongside the greatest musicians I've ever had the pleasure of working with.
