About Me


I'm a multi-instrumentalist, folk musician, and music teacher located in upstate South Carolina. I'll attempt to play anything with strings and have a love of Appalachian music traditions. Here you'll find information about my music, lessons, and who/where/when I'm playing in the near future. If you see anything you're interested in, drop me a line. I'm always happy to talk music.

Currently you can catch me playing bass with The Wild Pines and The New Time Travelers.


Greenville Farmer's Market with The Wild Pines

Greenville Farmer's Market, Main Street at McBee Ave, Greenville, SC

On Saturday mornings from the beginning of May until the end of October, two blocks of downtown Greenville’s Main Street are transformed into a bustling farmers' market. The market features over 75 vendors selling the season’s freshest produce and the area’s most original and high quality crafts. Each week thousands of people flock to the TD Saturday Market for locally-sourced products where all food must be grown or produced within 100 miles of Greenville and crafters are highly-encouraged to use locally-sourced supplies. Now, about to enter its 17th season in May, the market offers exciting programming, including live music, children’s activities and chef’s demonstrations sponsored by partnerships with local organizations.


A clawhammer banjo lesson at the Clemson Arts Center

I offer guitar, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, and upright bass lessons to students in the greater Clemson area. I focus on traditional Appalachian music, but can help students get started and progress in any style. contact me for more information, or to schedule a free trial lesson.

In addition to private lessons I also teach with Sounds of Carolina Music Academy in Anderson, SC. You can find out more about their programs and lessons offered at www.soundsofcarolina.com
