Guitar is the primary focus of my music with hints of soft rock and country. My songwriting goal is to pen lyrics that inspire, uplift and encourage.And ultimately to win souls for Christ.

I was born on September 1, 1968 in Long Island, Bahamas. I come from a fairly large family, being the sixth of ten children.
As a child I developed a love for music. I grew up listening to my father’s old vinyl records particularly Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, George Jones and the Chuckwagon Gang. My dad had an old guitar which he played a little and at the age of twelve I took a keen interest sitting at his feet envisioning myself playing like him one day. I learnt my first three chords, C, G and F from my primary school teacher, Mr. Smith. In my latter teen years my attention was drawn to popular guitar players of the time and fostered a great love for the guitar. Learning and absorbing all that I could from hearing them play.
On September 9, 1989 I married the love of my life, Aspasia. We have two wonderful sons, Raven and Tyler. The responsibility of family lead to a job that took me away from home hence my music suffered. During this time I gave my life to Christ and in the late 1990’s joined a Praise and Worship group at the Local Assembly.
In 2001, after the birth of our second son, Tyler, I took a new job that afforded me the luxury of once again dedicating time to guitar and music. I eventually became the Worship leader and wrote a few songs of my own.
Here I am today doing what I love most, using the gift of music through guitar, singing praises to God!
