About You About You

Worship Leader in various churches for over 40 years, currently at Songwriter: I was blessed to be the Music Director for my kid’s school (k-8) for 7.5 yrs, recorded two CD projects with the kids, and mentored the Middle School Praise Team for about 10 years ( I have recently been “volun-told” by my Pastor to start a Ukulele group, so… “Uke Can Do It” is a community-wide, free-lesson group that meets twice a month, that is focused on Beginners. I have about 20+ people that come regularly, I consider this an Outreach.

Influences Influences

I’m a product of the 70’s/80’s… love clean, classic rock. Was force-fed the old country growing up which I’m willing to enjoy more now. I stumbled onto Jazz and Big Band in my late teens and my heart and head exploded. I also like reggae, but kind of sound like a ‘white guy trying to do reggae’, and other Latin and Island rhythms… but I try. I also love passionate ethnic music of all kinds. Classical music can be enjoyable, but if the stanzas are too legato for too long-o, I get board and hope there are fireworks at the movement.

Experiences (e.g. places played and musical education) Experiences (e.g. places played and musical education)

I love doing music outside the church… I take a group to Camp Pendleton at least once a year (Squadron Christmas/ Santa Fly-In) and I play in my local community with a mix of secular and Christian music selections. I will begin playing a few wineries here in Fallbrook and Temecula next year. I took songwriting coaching for about 2 years from Lynn Barrington ( and have been to many workshops sponsored by publishers, mostly focused on Christian Worship. I have done some studio work, but mostly just use Garage Band here at my workstation.
Early in college I took some music theory which really helped, but have had more live experience than classroom training.

Equipment List Equipment List

I’m not much of a gear snob… I’m not the ‘lead player’. I mainly use an Ibanez acoustic/electric, a vocal harmonizing pedal (with loop capability that I will tackle soon). I have a pedal board but don’t use it. Usually use my portable Alto 6 channel PA around town. I loved using my Line 6 Variax, but it needs some fret work (which will be done in the next month or two). I do have an old Gibson ES-175, but I never take it out of the house…it has great sentimental value, not to mention the two dusty pots that sound marvelous over the pa system.

What Are You Looking For? What Are You Looking For?

I would love to get some ‘my’ tunes that are popular at my home church to be listed on CCLI. I would love to meet some songwriters I could learn to collaborate with (I’ve done some, but have not really ventured in this area).

Also, I want to get my daughter (26 yr old who focuses on Praise/Worship music) to be tutored by a great coach. Lexie lives in La Mirada, CA, her fiance is one of the new worship leaders of Eastside Church in Anaheim. It is her desire to make songwriting a life passion. I’m helping her look for events and networks she can begin to associate with, and grow in this craft.
