I grew up in the church as a PK (Pastor’s Kid) and was involved in the worship band from a young age. Growing up, I played saxophone in my dad's church, but also in various worship bands, events, camps and recording projects. I graduated from Indiana University School of Music with a performance degree on saxophone. While in college, I began doing some worship leading, which lead to a full-time music pastor position right after graduating, which is also when I began writing worship music. I served in that capacity for about 8 1/2 years. Then I switched gears and started my own web development business, while doing music ministry "part-time". I took on the worship leadership in a church plant and helped grow the church to about 550 members in 8 years. I have recorded 9 live worship CDs and been a part of many others during my 20+ years of worship leading. Much of what I've recorded has been original music. I am a co-founder of WorshipReady.com, which was birthed out of a worship conference and a desire to better equip worship leaders. My unique combination of worship leading experience and running a web development business makes WorshipReady.com a perfect setup. I use my musical training to create chord charts that I can guarantee as being accurate, then use my web development skills to put it all together and make it available! My wife, Rebecca, and I have 9 kids. The 4 oldest are out of the home, two being married. Then 5 at home still, 4 of which are a foster sibling group in the process of being adopted by us! We currently have an additional foster sibling set of 3 also. We live in Fort Collins, Colorado.
