At a very young age, my parents divorced and I went to live with my grandparents. This was probably the best decision my parents ever made. Every time the doors were open, my grandmother made me go to church. I hated it then but I know now that she had my best interests at heart. While traveling back and forth to church she and my grandfather would listen to old cassette tapes of singing groups. I would pretend to play the piano and sing every word with them. At the age of ten while singing a children’s song, my grandmother came to the realization that I had a real singing voice. I began to sing on stage during church services and eventually learned to play the piano. By the age of 15, I became a regular piano player at my uncle’s church and by the age of 16, was a full time piano player, with a teacher who taught me some amazing skills. I accepted the Lord as my Savior at 16 years old and spent the next few years living an amazing life playing piano and learning about God.
After graduating high school in 2002, my grandmother began to talk with me about my goals in life. I had a great job working in a Wilderness Program for Juvenile Delinquents. I was interested in being a Funeral Director, being a police officer, and singing on the stage of the NQC. I contiuned praying for my dreams to come true and in 2006 they came very close. I was given a full time singing position with a regional group called The Suwannee River Boys. I was able to be a part of the National Quartet Convention for the first time. After two months of singing with this group, I returned home and was hired at a local church to sing. I also fulfilled another dream and took a job as a Funeral Director and Embalmer. I continued to stay in contact with many different people in the music world. I met Gene McDonald and he gave me some advice. I followed his advice and enrolled in the Stamps Baxter School of Music. For the next four years I learned how to sing, play, and I was able to use these skills to grow.
In 2009, God opened another door and another dream came true. I graduated from the Police Academy and was hired into the Huntsville Police Department as an officer. Being the low man on the totem pole, I was not able to sing due to my schedule. In 2010, I stepped away from music and my life changed.
As of 2016, and I live in Meridianville, Alabama. I have a cattle farm, and old dog who is my best friend, and a great job at the police department. One day God spoke to me while working on the farm and listening to some amazing gospel music. I realized in that moment that I was not living the life that God had intended for me to live. I dropped to my knees and asked the Lord to forgive me for the things I had done and who I had become. Ever since that day, my life has been changed and now I am about the Business of the King.
I am a very easy going person with the desire to spread the word in song to everyone that will listen. I will witness on a dime. I don’t want anyone to second guess their salvation. I use humor and caring as a communciation skill. I love to make people laugh and I love to share my own life’s story on how God has changed me to spread the good news of Jesus Christ.
