When I was twelve years old I gave my life to Christ and haven’t looked back since. From that time on I have been studying and writing music steadily. In 2002, I received my Bachelor's Degree in Music from UC Berkeley followed by a Master's Degree in Media Writing and Production from the University of Miami in 2006. Over the years I have served in a variety of roles to include a music judge, talent coordinator, piano performer, music teacher, worship leader, and an orchestra and choir director for musicals, schools, an opera house, and of course, at church. I just married my best friend, Teri, in January of 2016. Although I went to high school in Turlock, I spent most of my life in the Bay Area. I recently moved to Tracy because I missed the small-town feel. Aside from music, I have a few passions including fitness, sports (frisbee, football, and volleyball), working with youth, and nerding out with Christmas lights. Most people know me as a bit of a perfectionist – I either go big or go home in everything I do. I love Jesus and music. Putting the two together makes the best job ever!
