I am a husband, father of five, pastor and proud Iowa-native.
I write songs for corporate worship with Thousand Tongues—including “Not in Me,” featured on The Gospel Coalition album “Songs for the Book of Luke.” I also dabble in general songwriting (with a preference for country and folk genres). I also enjoy reading and writing stories. Having completed a novel and novella (both still unpublished), I am at work on a second novel and a youth adventure series for my children.
