My Biography

I began playing music at the age of 9 when I became infatuated with the trombone. I played the trombone for the next few years until I discovered the banjo. When I first held a banjo in my hands and touched the strings it literally felt as though electricity was jumping off them and into my fingers. I was in love.
      Bob Woodmansee then got me the Don Van Palthe lesson series which I promptly devoured. I finished all four of the books in about 1 year then began studying and copying every banjo solo I could find a recording of.
