Overview

I currently serve as the Minister of Music at First Baptist Church of Umatilla, Fl where I lead a group of over 50 musicians in front of 1200 people every week from guitar (acoustic and electric). I have a BA in Music with an emphasis in Trombone from the University of Arkansas-Monticello where I played lead trombone in Jazz Band 1, principle trombone in Symphonic Band, as well as sang in the University Choir. While in Jazz Band 1, we were widely considered to be one of the top 25 jazz programs in the country while playing with artists: Mike Williams (lead trumpet for Count Basie), Bill Watrous (Jazz Times Magazine's trombone of the year multiple times), "Blue" Lou Marini (Aretha Franklin's Sax Player as well as saxaphonist in the movie the Blues Brothers). I have played professionally with members of the Glenn Miller Orchestra, Count Basie, Harry James Big Band, as well as being hired by such artists as Della Reese. I was also a member of the Arkansas Jazz Orchestra, Young At Heart Big Band, and played several times with the Arkansas Symphony. I play almost every instrument at more than a proficient level. I also studied music theory from elite Berkley Music Conservatory theorists, as well as composed and arranged music for my university marching band, concert band, and jazz band.
