It was played and added into rotation by over 200 FM radio stations across the US and Canada; heavily played on college radio, and received dozens synch licenses to play it on major networks and shows including: ESPN, Fox, Fox Sports Network, in college stadiums for games, shows on MTV (Rob Dydreks Ridiculousnous and Nitro Circus, The Real World, Road Rules, and Challenge), E! (Keeping up with the Kardashians), Nascar broadcasts and events, Best Ink, Take (Kardashians), Bad Girls, and more.After College he went on the road for the summer on a cross country bicycling event called The Journey of Hope which raises funds and awareness for people with disabilities. He went on the trip with only two weeks notice before they left to replace someone who couldn't go, then traveled over 4,700 miles across the country from San Francisco to Washington D.C. on a bicycle while raising money for the charity.Originally from the Midwest (Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas), his family moved often and is spread out across Florida, Kentucky, and California where they still live. His mother and grandfather are artists, and his dad's side of the family were all military dating back to the Civil War. His great grandmother was a full blooded Cherokee Indian, great grandfather was an immigrant from The Netherlands, and is also from Swedish, Danish, German, Irish, Sioux and Apache Indian descent.He started working when he was 8 helping his dad with roofing and construction jobs, cleaning grocery store floors at night, as a paperboy, and when his entire family had a job cleaning an electric plant at night. He quit school early to work full time after his father became disabled. Working all sorts of jobs including construction, roofing, building metal buildings, as a mechanic, lifeguard, working in a wellness center, as a waiter, and several other odd jobs. He was the first in his family to finish College earning a degree from The University of Oklahoma's Business School in Management and Information Systems, with minors in History and Music.He says his inspiration to start acting came from watching and acting out Saturday Night Live skits as a kid, movies, and from watching Robin Williams doing improv in his roles and standup. In College he did some student films that he and his friends would write and shoot for their classes or for fun. More interested in music than acting at the time, he says he never really seriously considered trying to write anything other than music or work in the film industry.He makes music in his favorite styles and genres to form a unique mixture of Indie Rock, Folk, Blues, Funk, and Jazz. His previous bands, where he played lead guitar, keys, and was a backup singer, include one that recorded with and was produced by two members of the band Other Lives and also featured a member of Colourmusic at the time on that album. His debut EP titled: It's Not Enough was recorded at Bell Labs in Norman OK and features performances by Grammy Award Winners Trent Bell and Rob Martin of The Sugar Free Allstars on drums.
