Born in Russellville, Al, I came to Florence to work as a musician and attend the University of North Alabama. I spent some time touring as a guitarist and singer. I also worked in theatrical and concert production. I have served on the Alabama Music Hall of Fame Foundation board as a secretary and the lighting director for the Ritz Theatre in Sheffield, Al. I currently teach guitar and stage crafts at Florence Middle School and teach guitar, stage band, and stage crafts at Florence High School. I also serve as the technical director for the Florence Academy of Fine Arts at FHS and resident designer. A lighting and sound designer by trade, I have enjoyed mentoring student artists in Florence City Schools since 2006.
