I started playing music early, and the songwriting aspect became more important during the college
years at Auburn University and the University of Southern California, where I received an athletic
scholarship to represent the schools’ tennis teams.
Growing up with music and tennis, I continued this combination after graduating, and with the
guitar as a travel partner I went around the world as a professional tennis player, writing songs
between matches on planes, trains and in hotel rooms.
Since leaving the tour, I have been able to stay in one place for a longer period of time, which has
given me a chance to dedicate myself more to music. I have spent most of the last 5 years in Italy,
where I am involved in various projects, from acoustic duos to rockbands. In 2009 I came out with
the album ‘Touch’, a blend of folk, blues, country and funk, and I am currently promoting my latest work called ‘Vagabond Stories’ produced together with Giampaolo Pasquile.
