After 5 years as a worship pastor and nearly 20 years of touring, recording and playing worship services I began a new journey. In 2013, I began my journey on a career to help bassists, specifically worship bassists, to play their instrument with confidence and passion.
Performing as a musician is what I’ve longed to do ever since I was a teenager. I’ve been a bassist for 35 years, but later learned guitar and recently began playing cello. There is nothing that makes me come alive more than performing on stage with other passionate musicians.
With over 35 years experience and love for the bass guitar, I’ve played in venues ranging from loud rock concerts, quiet jazz dinner parties, vacation bible schools, smoke filled bars, recording sessions and worship services.
As a Nashville bassist, I toured with Grammy winning Christian Rock band Petra, and have worked with a number of artists and songwriters including Michael Tait (DC Talk, Newsboys) and songwriter Brian White (Watching You, Rodney Atkins; Rough and Ready, Trace Adkins). While in Nashville, I had the privilege of learning from bassist and educator Roy Vogt (Belmont University), and Reggie Wooten (brother of bassist Victor Wooten).
Heart of a Pastor
I served five years as a pastor and music director in South St. Louis. I’ve always loved walking with people and encouraging them through life’s difficulties.
Husband and Dad
I’ve been married to my wife, Christi, for 15 years and we have three beautiful daughters ages 12, 10, and 6.
