Before embarking on his fast-rising comedy career, Earthquake spent eleven years in the Air Force where he was enlisted as a sergeant. While stationed at Eglin Air Force Base in Ft. Walton Beach Florida, he found his funny while performing stand-up onstage at the military's well known talent show "Tops & Blues." Recognizing he may have found his comedic niche, Earthquake took his comedy outside the military as well and began performing in comedy clubs & rooms in the southern U.S.
A move to Atlanta was next, where Earthquake pursued comedy full time and found that working in comedy clubs as well as owning them was the way to go. He opened the "Uptown Comedy Corner" and "Earthquake's Comedy Corner II" which became known for introducing hot talent in Atlanta, and bringing in established comedic talent from all over the country.
His straight-ahead humor resonated with his audiences, and Earthquake was asked to join the Def Comedy Jam circuit on the road. He later took a trip to L.A. and made several appearances on BET's "Comic View" during its early years, alongside D.L. Hughley, Cedric the Entertainer and a few other of today's best comedians who were also making their mark. Quake made quite an impression on BET, and they quickly offered him his own 1/2 Hour Comedy Special. His slam dunk comedic style has won him coveted spots on Comedy Central's "Premium Blend", VH-1's "The List" as well as a guest appearance on "Mad TV."
He appeared on stage at the "BET Awards " with Ludacris and was personally requested as a headlining comedian for Magic Johnson's Midsummer Night's Magic Weekend comedy show two years in a row.
