I grew up in Kentucky where music was always a part of my life, thanks to my family and especially my Dad, the best music teacher that ever lived.

I joined Youth With A Mission in 1990 (never left) and married a girl from California (never left her either). We got 3 kids somehow.

We've lived in Ontario in Canada and most recently in Modesto, CA where we live out what we call Creative, Compassionate Community. So, we sing, write, dance, teach, travel, work with church congregations, city ministries, mission teams, street people and youth (and preferably, a mixed combo of all of the above, all at once).

Writing songs is a way I process my experiences and respond to God, scripture, stories and people.
