I’ve always dreamed of being a rodeo clown. I grew up riding bulls, then started bullfighting , but it wasn’t until I grabbed a mic that I realized I found my true calling. I absolutely love to make people laugh and put on a family friendly show, jam packed with fresh non-stop walk and talk comedy along with big original acts such as, WILDMANIA (monster truck act), The PERV (tank act), baby grand piano, firetruck, and chic-o-matic. My show will leave you talking for weeks after the rodeo is over and wanting to come back for more.

THE MAN BEHIND THE MIXER

Since I was little kid, rodeo has always played a huge role in my life. My grandpa as well as my dad both grew up riding saddle bronc horses, chasing every cowboys dream, day in and day out. I had no choice to grow up being involved in every aspect the rodeo world had to offer, but it wasn’t hard falling in love with it. When I first had my start I wanted to follow suit and try riding bulls and broncs, and while I did that for a couple of years being somewhat successful, I discovered a completely different side of rodeo that many people don’t recognize. I’ve never met a stranger in my life and talking to others always came so naturally to me, so I picked up a microphone one day and said “why not!” Getting to go to rodeos and bull ridings knowing for certain I got a check at the end of the night was much more logical and intriguing to me than the unknown being a contestant. I became more successful than I ever thought, and grew my name tremendously within a year with the help of good friends, and for that I’m extremely grateful for. I always like trying new things and bettering myself in any way I can, so this past year I decided to hang up the microphone and dive head first into sound production. It instantly clicked with me unlike anything I did before, and everyday I find myself more and more passionate about what I get the opportunity to do. Since choosing this path I have bought an entire concert series sound system. I never want to be someone who is comfortable and content with being mediocre, and I am consistently looking for anything that would help improve my business in every way. No matter how big or small the venue or organization is, I personally make a promise to myself that I will give 110% everywhere I go, every single time. I give all the credit to our amazing God and my wonderful wife and beautiful kids who support me every weekend, while I’m getting to travel around the country living out my dream.
