About Me

I'm a proud native of the Commonwealth of Kentucky now living in Texas. I grew up an hour north of Nashville, Tennessee, but on the Kentucky side, southeast of Bowling Green in the town of Scottsville. My mother worked in banking and my father worked for the Kentucky Revenue Cabinet. I have siblings, nieces, nephews, great nieces and a great nephew. 

I've performed many roles in musicial theater, opera, oratorio, etc. including Tamino a leading role in "The Magic Flute", Tiger Brown in "The Three Penny Opera",  Jenik in "The Bartered Bride", Nathan in the musical "Shenandoah", "Saint Nicholas" in Benjamin Britten's oratorio "Saint Nicholas", and Tenor arias from "Messiah" among others. I'm comfortable performing various genre with choirs, solos and small ensembles.

In college I was a member of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia fraternity and my big brother is Bill Haynes. I have a Bachelors of Music Education and a Master of Arts in Education with a major in Music and a minor in Secondary Education both from Western Kentucky University. I've directed church choirs for several years.
