    I am a Christian Country recording artist called
    according to His Purpose, His Kingdom, and His Glory!

    I gave my heart to Jesus kneeling in a cold, gray
    prison cell, surrounded by concrete & steel. It was my
    third time in prison and I had tried everything the
    world had to offer in order to attempt to fill that
    void in my life. That night, Jesus touched me!!

    At this time in my life, I had been writing, singing,
    and playing country and southern rock music for about
    10 years. I had never really been involved with church
    and I had no knowledge of Christian music. So as God
    fine tuned my abilities and the Word became more
    prominent in my life I began to write my own songs
    unto the Lord.

    I could provide details of my past that would probably
    amaze most, for my life was typical of one who might
    land in prison three times. But with Jesus, it's not
    about where you have been, it's about where you are

    Only Jesus can take a shattered past and give it a
    future! Only Jesus can take a broken, beaten heart and
    give it hope! Only Jesus can take an utterly hopeless
    situation and provide a victory! He can do for you
    what He has done for me!

    I walked out of prison five years ago for the third
    and final time. Though my journey since then has been
    tough, Jesus has walked with me every step of the way.
    I have been unable to or make a descent living due to
    my past, but every time there has been a need, God has
    provided. Sure I could put together some slapstick
    band and make good money playing in bars and clubs,
    but I have chosen to use my God given talents for HIS
    PURPOSE, KINGDOM AND GLORY! He is using what He has
    given me to change lives!

    I have my entire debut album "Walk With Me"
