I was born and raised in Southern California where my father pastored in the Vineyard Church and my mother helped lead worship. Our family of 5 all played instruments and from a very early age I was writing songs and playing in bands. After moving to Santa Barbara right out of high school I met my beautiful girl Melissa and married her in 2001. A couple years later our first son, Owen, was born and we soon decided to relocate to Phoenix.

In 2004 we started attending what was then known as New Generation Church which eventually because Redemption Alhambra. Melissa started serving in Kids Church and I started serving on the worship band. Many years later and a couple more kids later(enter Hailey and Adia) my family continues to be overjoyed in serving this body in any capacity we can. Currently I lead the band Our Rising Sound, am part of our elder team and help manage our finances.

My family loves this church, we love our people and feel honored to be called to this community.
