“I became a Christian the summer before my senior year in high school. That changed everything for me. All during high school, I studied with a concert pianist and  was accepted at Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY, fully expected to embark on a professional music career as a pianist and composer.
But God has His ways of putting my feet on His path, for His purposes. I changed my plans at the last minute, and followed my friends to a Christian college on the West Coast. That decision was one of the best of my life. It was during that time that I began my lifelong love for serving on worship teams. I would not trade my years in Gospel music for anything in the world. Throughout high school and college, I was a church pianist, organist and soloist. I spent every available hour of my life singing for weddings, playing piano and organ for church services and revivals, special occasions and holidays.”
