I was raised up on Country music. I had a friend who was an artist. I regularly traveled with her doing shows. After my first trip to Nashville and visiting the Ryman, I quickly became more involved with Country music. I met many of the older artists while being with her, and became closely involved in the music industry as time went by through these artists. This is how I learned the music industry first hand. I feel I have been taught by some of the best Nashville has to offer. One of the artists in particular showed me the importance of treating his band and management team as family. Seven years ago, I started managing and promoting Country artists, giving my services for no charge. Three years ago, I started signing artists to a contract and charging. The way I charge an artist is different from most management agencies because I’ve seen the struggles an Indie Artist goes through to get known. This is my reason for doing management in my own style.

I've been into music for as long as I could speak. I started playing guitar around 12 years old, and started writing my own songs at 15. I've worked hard to position myself for a future in music, which is why I chose SGU as management in the first place. Now, with the opportunity to work alongside Phyllis, I plan to help each artist affiliated with SGU in achieving their dreams! With Phyllis taking care of the management side of things and myself covering the media and artist development, I believe we will create a force to be reckoned with.
