In my own words
First I give praise and glory to God.I know no words to thank everyone that has made "ME" WE. There is not a resume credit that doesn't include my momma and family.
I am grateful and humbled by the blessing of an entertainment lifetime.
During a recent seminar after the normal fluff, I did this and that, a young man asked me "What was the number one challenge I faced ?" Without hesitation I shouted REJECTION. For the remaining talk I realized that rejection had the most impact on my failures and success. To acquire jobs in all different entertainment genres meant no matter how much success I had in one genre, the next job I had to go back to the beginning. So out of rejection I established some ground rules for myself.
1. I had to get these jobs based on the merit of my talent and not the merit of my stature.
2. Chase the knowledge and not the money. Knowledge breeds confidence and provides qualifications.
3. Set my own standards and definition of success.
4. Speak directly and honest about my strength and weaknesses. I would always tell clients that no matter what, I can play that piano and write that music! Now can you help me with what I need to know or do to get this gig.
I am a man of stories which I share on each of the entertainment genres. Click the button Discography page. Of course you can book me for the total journey!
