I love words. I love music. I love writing songs that are comprised of four chords and a gust of wind.
I am deeply impacted and inspired by the works of Madeleine L’Engle, C.S. Lewis and other great story tellers. Nothing grabs my heart and speaks to the deepest parts of me like a story, so my music (lyrics and production) tends to have storytelling qualities to it.
More than anything, I love Jesus and want to live my life defined and directed by him. And as an artist and a follower of Jesus, who I want to be can most easily be summed up in this excerpt from Madeleine L'Engle's "Walking on Water"...
“For an artist is not a consumer, as our commercials urge us to be. An artist is a nourisher and a creator who knows that during the act of creation there is collaboration. We do not create alone…We are to be in this world as healers, as listeners, and as servants.”
