I grew up in a sort of Christian home, but it had a lot of problems (like most families comprised of humans). My parents worked a lot, but I knew they loved me and wanted the best for me. I got religious early, but I had no roots. I was 'that Jesus guy' who would club you with a Scripture verse, but couldn't really explain it to you. Fast forward to my twenties, I had sinned A LOT (all the bad stuff) but remained very religious #hypocrite. Then, on a military deployment in Iraq, God brought me to the end of myself. It wasn't out of fear for my life, but a view of His goodness and my brokenness. Since then, God has called me to share the Gospel through preaching, leading worship, and defending the faith against atheists and religious cults.

If you didn't know, I like music - a ton. Growing up I played some pretty awesome (and some pretty weird) classical trumpet music. This was mainly stuff written before the 1800's - very old! During my time playing trumpet, I had a relationship with God that was mainly driven by how well I did what the bible said I should do. I felt like I had to perform for God just like I was performing my trumpet in front of an audience. Now I play guitar (and not trumpet) - and music written mainly in the last 30 years! What I know now is how I don't need to perform before God because he has forgiven me by grace. It's this message that I love to share through music and am excited to share with you!
