The first band he traveled and played consistent shows, was a local band called Whistletoe. He later left that band to study music at University of Nevada, Reno. He later found his way back to California where he played in the Straight-Ahead Big Band, an 18-piece Big Band that was the only big band jazz band of that size from Sacramento to Portland. He played with professional musicians and traveled all over Northern California playing jazz standards from the 1920-1930 Big Band era."It was an experience of a lifetime, I was a young kid playing with these amazing and accomplished musicians. I was just fortunate to be in the right place at the right time."
He then got on with a group by the name of Within Crawling Distance who was led by an American Idol finalist. Down the road he connected with Isaiah58, an alternative rock band in the Christian Music circuit who disbanded before 2020.
Since then he has been back in the studio and focusing on his solo work.
