Like many kids, I grew up without a Mother or Father present in my life which made for a really difficult childhood. I lived with Aunts/Uncles, Grandmas/Grandpas and at 15 years old Iwas living on my own bouncing from house to house with many different friends. When I was about 16, I decided that I was done being a victim of my parents' bad choices. This was the time that I found my purpose, my faith and my passion for music, which was the driving force that helped get my life together.

Immediately after high school I started studying Commercial Music and Guitar at Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA. After graduating in 2000, I started to purse a Bachelors degree from Hope International University in Fullerton, CA, all the while I was leading worship and writing music as much as I possible could. It was during this time I found the person that I was going to marry! Shortly after, we had our first child...four years later, our 2nd child. Life is good!!

In most cases, I write from a perspective that says, "There is always Hope; Never give up." Sometimes we have to fight for the things we want; We have to be strong in the midst of the many storms. Though, sometimes I struggle, I question, but in many cases I find myself rejoicing and thanking God for the blessings.

I currently live Southern California with my wife and two children. I attend the Hills Church in Arcadia Ca. where I lead worship. I am continually writing and recording songs for the Church and believe that I have only just begun!
