I grew up in in the country outside the small town of Keokuk, Iowa. My best childhood memory is getting to be outdoors on our three acres, playing in the woods with my brothers. I loved just being still out there, listening to the wind in the trees and watching the birds and the squirrels.
When I was in elementary school, my dad and mom bought me a comic book Bible. I read that thing cover to cover multiple times. I was captivated by the story of The Father creating a good world, the brokenness of that world by mankind's rebellion, and Jesus' work of setting that world right. I experienced that story to be true through the Holy Spirit indwelt people of The Church.
My parents started me on piano when I was nine and my Grandpa got me started on the guitar. I played all the time and started writing and recording songs in high school. The songs and stories I write stem from life and faith, and I love to share them with others. I would love to come and play a concert for you at your church, venue or home. I hope you find some truth as you listen.
