I am a composer/arranger based in south-central Kentucky.
My love for music came at an early age when I began taking piano lessons from Mrs. Phyllis Egnew. Growing up, I was a “house cat,” as Mom always said, spending way too much time inside playing Nintendo games (if that’s possible, I guess). Through the years, I printed off sheet music for every Nintendo theme I could find, geeked out, and created medleys of my favorite tunes. It was then when I found my passion for music. Later, I joined the Russell County Band in 6th grade, had my life changed, went on to Western Kentucky University where—after I got over my dreams of being Mr. Lawyer Boy, J.D.—I decided to marry my heart exclusively to music.
Since then, I have been so fortunate to teach and write marching band shows for some awesome students. I work with fine directors and staff teams that I consider my dearest friends. I have designed for ensembles who achieved such accomplishments as state and circuit champions, runners-up, and finalists, including Bands of America Grand Nationals Class Champion, and Regional and Super Regional Finalists.
My music for wind ensemble is published by C. Alan Publications. Please check out my composition, Flaher, at their website.
In 2017, I am looking forward to the premiere of my new work for percussion ensemble performed by the Graves County HS Percussion Ensemble at the Kentucky Music Educators Association Convention in February.
