"Without music that test the limits of our abilities we can never expand them."

I began my career as a child playing fiddle on the Country Music Theater Shows in Branson, Mo performing for thousands of people each night. During that time I was heavily involved in fiddling competitions and won more than a dozen State Fiddling Championships by the time I was 20 years old.

By my mid twenties I was touring across the Country with various groups including the Florida State Champion Bluegrass/JazzGrass Band (The Prospectors) to heavy experimental Jazz Fusion, Funk/Rock, Blues and Southern Rock groups while performing with 5-string Electric Violins.

By the time I was 30 I had my own instrumental Violin show that performed  all original Funk/Rock and Jazz Fusion shows around the world.  After I retired at 45 I settled for awhile in Boston and earned a Masters degree at the Berklee School of Music.

I have now moved back to the Ozarks where I was raised and spend most of my time studying Bach on classical guitar. Although I no longer tour, I still perform exhibition type violin shows in theaters, theme parks and fine dinning establishments across the Country while performing a large variety of styles and genres.
