Since my mother was the church secretary & pianist, and my father was an elder in our church, I literally grew up in the church. My earliest recollections are of wild game dinners, youth groups, and caroling for the shut-ins at Christmastime. Music was a big part of our family life, and singing with my older sister and brother was a regular thing, Current influences include: Paul Baloche, Chris Tomlin, Jared Anderson, and Matt Redman. My music is drawn from life experience. Having been divorced, and on my own for several years now, I have a lot of material to work from.
