I grew up around music and musicians. But it wasn't until the summer of 1983 that I seriously considered playing an instrument. My dad was a professional drummer and he taught me how to play. In 1983 I met Ken Swanger, a beginning guitarist, and we formed the band The Oath.

We have been playing professionally full-time ever since our first professional gig in 1985. I also handle the bands bookings and business.

We've released several independent efforts of original material, and we were the featured artists on a major South Carolina radio station. We won the Rock 101 best band search, in the classic rock category, and were included on the compilation album "An Hour From Atlanta To Charlotte". We also had a song included on the compilation album "Full Measure Of Devotion".

We have performed in eleven states, and have played every kind of gig imaginable. I love playing in The Oath, and can't wait to see what the future holds!
