Singing in my band, talk radio, veteran advocacy, I love to travel, watching movies, spending time with my family, and riding my Harley with no destination in mind. I also like playing on my PS4 when I have free time (there's an oxymoron for you).

All music has a place in my heart, depends on the mood
I’ve been a radio personality/DJ for the past 20 years, and I’ve been singing in rock bands for the past 17 years. Headphones have always been a tool of the trade for radio and recording, not as much in the realm of actually enjoying what comes through them. I sang for KRoM (pronounced Chrome, rock band) in Abilene, TX, 3 Quarters Dead (Goth Rock/Metal) in Winston Salem, NC, Darque Carnival (Metal) in Reno, NV, and the drummer Rick and I formed Seasons of Insanity (Southern Rock) in 2006 which is still going strong, as well as the side project I’m singing and writing for, 4the22, a rock band that gives the funds from the sales of each song to veteran nonprofits. I was born into music with a musician for a father, and I’ve lived my life through music and military through my father’s (Air Force) and my own service (Navy). You might say I’m an expert on music in general, but I’d debunk that, as I’m consistently learning and being fascinated by more every single day. I also work with homeless veterans through one organization, the Veterans Resource Centers of America, and I started the 501c3, Veteran Development Group Inc, with a program Operation EMPLOY to help veterans and first responders with resumes and getting connected with employment opportunities in Northern Nevada. I'm currently creating a veteran and first responder only daycare to assist with child care, which is one of, if not THE biggest barrier to a veteran being successful in newly acquired employment. Music is my love, but helping my fellow veterans is my passion.
