As a guitarist, I have the good fortune to play and tour with artists who have sold well over 25,000,000 units. I get to play on the biggest stages around the world performing in front of a million + fans per tour. If there is an award show or tv show to play, I've most likely played it...multiple times. These shows include Saturday Night Live, The Grammys, American Music Awards, Billboard Awards, CMA Awards, ACM Awards, People's Choice Awards, Letterman, Leno, Fallon, Good Morning America, Dick Clark's Rockin' Eve at Times Square and countless more. For the past 11 years I have been and am currently a guitarist for Carrie Underwood. Other platinum and multi-platinum acts I've performed with include Steven Tyler (Live pre-superbowl Crossroads), The Band Perry, Lindsey Buckingham (VH-1 live Fashion Rocks), SHeDAISY, and many more.
If I'm not on stage playing guitar, I love being on stage speaking and connecting! There's something special that happens when it's just me and a microphone. I love the intimacy...regardless how large the crowd. From stage, I share the experiences I've had in my life and career and what happened along the way. I'll share with you three life changing lessons that I've learned through the ups, downs and heartaches of carving out a musical career. These are universal lessons that will encourage and motivate you to continue to "Show Up." I commit to bring a fresh perspective and new tools so you will continue to show up, do the hard things, face your insecurities and through it all, have an unsurpassed peace. This is a talk and message for all age groups from all walks of life.
Relationships. We all need them. We all want them, personally and professionally. If there is one thing that I love, possibly the most, it's building relationships and connecting people. I'm a connector. So, what do I do? Among other things, I've spent the last couple of years connecting Silicon Valley start-ups like Boostit and Tivamo with influencers. Influencers who can help bring the start-up to the masses. I connect dots and create relationships. With each of these start-ups, I've also helped with strategic, go-to-market campaigns working alongside superstar CEOs. CEOs who have created and or built 100 million dollar tech companies. I build and cultivate relationships with integrity, transparency and a genuine heart for the relationships. Whether you need to build new connections, cultivate existing or repair ailing relationships...I'm your guy.
