It's been a privilege to serve in many different churches over the years. I began as a contemporary music director in the 1990's in the nascent phase of a thriving student ministry at Park Street Church in Boston. From there I served in the same function on staff and First Presbyterian in Berkeley, CA. I currently lead worship at Church On The Corner in Albany, CA and serve on the Board there as well.
During my tenure at First Pres Berkeley I had a hard time finding songs that fit sermon topics. Rather than leading my favorite popular worship songs, I wrote a few simple songs to support the sermon. To my surprise a few gained support from the worship team as well as the congregation. I began submitting them to Worship Leader Magazine's SongDISCovery over the years and a few were chosen to go on the CD. Consequently churches around the country began reporting using the songs via CCLI. This was so exciting to me, and still is, so I continue to lead worship and write worship songs as time allows.
Matchless God and King was released in 2018. I will release a new 9 song CD in November 2021 as well as several single releases leading up. The first single, LORD HAVE MERCY, premiered on Feb 19, 2021 on YouTube, Spotify and iTunes.
