Born on April 21, 1975 in Milwaukee, WI.  Graduated from Zion Benton High School in Zion, IL in 1993.  At this point, I had no serious musical endeavors.  I took some guitar lessons in the 6th grade but could only play “Iron Man” with bar chords.  I only knew at that time that I really loved music…hip-hop and rock were early influences. 

In the fall of 1993, my family and I moved to St. Louis, MO and I began the college scene.  Jazz and crazy beats intrigued me.  In between classes and working as a waiter, I grabbed the bass guitar and learned to sync with the drums.  My love for rhythm and for making music continued to grow.

In 1996 and at the age of 21 I went forward to be baptized on Easter Sunday.  I always attended church but this was a pivotal decision for me.  I would now begin my journey as a Christ follower.  For the next several years I played bass for the youth band at church.

Fast forward to today, I am currently an outreach minister in Morris, IL.  When I am not changing my 14-month-old son’s diapers, hoping for another Bull’s victory, or treating my wife to a gourmet Jimmy John’s sandwich, you just might find me working on my next song.  It is my desire to glorify God with my music and to have fun.  Hope you enjoy the tunes!
