Hey Everyone! Check here For Updates on my music any 'ol time..
Merry Christmas , everyone! My Youtube Christmas special is complete and available for watching! I took a short hiatus from gigging lately to focus on other projects in my life. I am trying to come up with more creative ideas for fruition. I am working on a screen play, hopefully that will come about next year, but I'm not sure. Its called "no more lonely birthdays". With the creative process it goes in spurts with me, but its nice to branch out that way. Writing and composing music gives me great joy. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year !

In Film 2014:
The release of "Field Of Lost Shoes" was this past April. I was very excited to be a featured extra in the film. The film was directed by Sean McNamara, and premiered in Richmond , as well as other cities across the South. I was asked to play a Union soldier. My cousin Addison Hagan was also in the film and was interviewed about his experience. You can read that article online here. The movie had many other Hollywood names including Lauren Holly and David Arquette. Also young Disney Star Luke Benward got a featured role. The film was shot on location at VMI and also around Powhatan County , Virginia- that is where I did most of my scenes. Its very exciting to have a part in something that wonderful!
