Grew up in a very small town in rural Wisconsin. I was forced into playing music at school and started writing songs during my teen years but never with the intent of using them. Now many years later God has taken my music across the country and I am humbled to be able to use my gifts for His glory.
It's my hearts desire to see as many reach with The Gospel as possible. In particular the next few generations coming up- not withstanding my own generation. I feel like the nature of my testimony and the way Christ has chosen to use that to the advancement of His Kingdom is crucial in the present landscape of the world. Music has very graciously been the way Christ has allowed me to convey His message of Salvation in my life.
