Whether you know me   from the dozens of country artists I've worked with, the radio hits I've played on, or from crazy world tours like Kid Rock, there's something here for everyone. I've recently added tons of new stuff including a bunch of new photos, videos and mp3's, as well as a news blog and a "Hire Me" page where you can find out more about the services I offer: remote recording, via the internet, and also hiring me as producer for your music. Come back often, and feel free to drop me a line and let me know what you think!

Bio and Work Experience

The past twenty years have provided a diverse list of accomplishments.
I have toured with acts ranging from uber-star Kid Rock to British synth/pop stars Erasure.
I am a Session Player with credits including CMA, ASCAP and ACM songs of the year.
Working as a Sideman with over 100 major-label Country artists such as Rascal Flatts, Taylor Swift, and Randy Travis

I have played major-label master sessions for legendary producers like Paul Worley, James Stroud, Don Cook, Blake Chancey, Kyle Lehning, Chuck Howard, and Ron Chancey.

My compositional talents can be heard alongside Jerry Douglas's and Ricky Skaggs's in the score for the HBO movie "The Grave", and on his upcoming solo record “American Idle”.
