“I went from a large church playing 1 instrument for 2 services to a small church playing 3 instruments for 1 service”
I’m a husband, a composer, a teacher, worship musician, performer, and I even work a full-time day job. I’ve served as a worship musician for about 8 or 9 years. I love the Lord, my God and I desire to worship Him through music forever.
I was born in Knoxville – raised in Kodak, TN. Attended the University of TN where I studied Music Theory/Composition and focused my studies in electronic music. I released my debut album ‘Progressing Deviation‘ in 2007, proposed to the most wonderful girl in the world while backed by a full orchestra & graduated with my B.M. Magna Cum Laude in 2009. My wife and I got married in July 2010 & in 2011 I released ‘More Than Ever‘ with bass legend Steve DiGiorgio (Soen, Death, Testament) & drummer Yanic Bercier (Gone in April, Quo Vadis). Ever since, my relationship with God has grown exponentially as I continue to be faithful in the little & compose for the future of the Kingdom.
