My career is leading local churches in worship through music. I work out of a professional studio set up in a spare bedroom. My desire for any session I'm in, live in the studio or online, is to deliver a high level of excellence.
I am a multi instrumentalist session musician who is proficient with guitar, bass, drums, percussion, and vocals. I'm not a part time musician, I do this full time. I have the experience and know how to deliver a high quality track in a short amount of time.
