Been playing banjo since May 2011. I didn't get into bluegrass until early 2011 after my dad had me listen to the original Mercury recordings of Flatt & Scruggs. After that, I was hooked and I'm glad I began to appreciate bluegrass music and all it has to offer. I've started my time in the Coast Guard, currently at the USCGA to start what I hope to be a very long and successful career as a Coast Guard officer. The banjo has provided a great, constructive distraction from the doldrums of the Academy. I hope to get into the tactical/deployable side of the Coast Guard when I graduate and receive my commission. Too bad the Coast Guard doesn't have a bluegrass band like the Navy does; I may just have to start one!
