I started playing guitar when I was in 7th grade. I wrote a lot of songs but never did anything with them. After high school I went to Venezuela on a YWAM mission trip where I learned a lot about the recording industry and eventually decided that doing it myself sounded more inexpensive and a lot more fun. A couple years later I bought some recording equipment and recorded a few songs here and there. After picking the best ones I planned the CD, re-recorded, and released.
And that's where we are now, and I'm already starting to write and plan for the second one.

This CD has been a lot of hard work writing songs over many years and recording this past year. It's taken longer than I originally planned but it's out now and I'm excited.
"You Found Me" was a song written in faith. I didn't have a girl in mind when I wrote it. Instead I felt God was telling me to be ready for someone unlike anything I had ever imagined. I felt it was more generic too. God's thoughts and plans are rarely the ones we have for ourselves. We need to be open for different, open for change. I didn't realize how true this song was until I graduated and started dating a girl I had known for many years but never seriously considered (and vice versa). Within ten months we were married.
These past couple of years have not turned out how I had planned. They turned out better! Thank you all for your support and prayers as I have faced various trials and the joys of growing into a man.

Ordering a CD also allows you to immediately download MP3s to listen to while you wait for it to arrive. I usually ship CDs the next day.
