I took my first steps toward music when in the sixth grade I decided I wanted to play the trumpet in the school band. From there, my musical curiosity grew in the direction of the guitar. I had seen so many great guitar players on the album covers of the music my dad listened to, and knew I had a calling. I was destined to play guitar, and have been a guitar and bass player for the better part of two decades.
During my college years, I earned my Bachelor's degree in Audio and Video Production from Ball State University. After graduating, I spent a couple years in Nashville working for studios on Music Row doing assistant engineering for acts such as Alison Krauss and Jimmy Buffet. I also am the owner of an event DJ service emceeing and providing the sound scape for many weddings and corporate events. With this experience I feel absolutely confident I can assist you in making all of your musical dreams come true!
As your personal contact here at Sweetwater, please let me know anytime I can offer help or advice.

Excellent customer service, excellent product, excellent staff! I love that I can always reach a live person with questions. I always get individual treatment.
Kathy from Wilmington, NC
Absolutely amazed by the personal service on our order! It is obvious customer satisfaction is a priority. Your company would be the first place we would look for music related items. Great prices, great service and BTW, even the little touch of adding some candy made my kids very pleased! Thank you!
David from Renton, WA
I have to say it's the most personal order I've ever made from the pre-ship phone call, to the email, and finally the candy in the box. Thanks! I don't think I could beat the customer service even in a local shop
Chrystal from McMinnville, TN
From the customer service call after my order, to e-mailing me a copy of the invoice, to the great price, free shipping and candy in the box...a pleasure!
