I grew up in Washburn, IL.
All of my life I have been chasing my dream. I have a wonderful supportive wife and six children ranging from 18 to 4 yrs old. I have completed two independent albums. My first album was used as a fundraiser on a national level for THE AMERCIAN LEGION and my second album "daylight & goodbye" features a song called "In Memory Of" It has been played all over the country at many Law Enforcement ceremonies, including my live performance at this years National Law Enforcement Memorial's Candle Light vigil in Washington DC. I continue to try to find success as a performer and songwriter, but first and foremost I just want to be the best husband and father I can be. I truly believe it is important to show my children that dreams can be achieved and success can only measured along the way. In my mind , I'm already a winner... I enjoy life and have a loving family. Being able to be a contestant would definitely be a great opportunity for my career to take of and a great adventure for my family. please stop by the following websites to learn more about me.
