In 1992 Rocky and 2 partners opened, operated, and were the house band for Fanny Moon's Beer Hall in Underground Atlanta. In 1996 they closed the jazz club and Rocky decided to finally put his art backrgound to use when he began a freelance graphic design, illustration, and web design firm, ArtWorks Graphics.
Rocky continues to play music professionally as the co-owner and banjo player of Atlanta's Ruby Red's Band and has taught 4-string banjo workshops throughout the country, often contributing articles to leading banjo magazines. His latest project was creating 3 virtual groups: B@LL L@BS; BALL BEARING; and PLAY BALL, to showcase original music he's written and recorded for digital distribution.
Additionally, Rocky keeps a daily hand in the computer graphics business as ArtWorks Graphics continues to be a source for economical high-quality graphic design, web design, and illustration for small businesses in Atlanta.
