I have been blessed that art and music have been part of my life since any early age. Growing up in Northern Michigan I started taking piano lessons at 6 years old and that musicality and artistry followed me through high school band and art classes. I joined the US Army Reserve in 2000 when I graduated high school and in 2003 I was deployed to Iraq. This is where my love of guitar really started.
I started to play the guitar while I was on deployment and I ordered my first electric guitar from Iraq so that it was waiting for me when I returned home. My love of hard rock and heavy guitars goes back to my pre-teen days when I was first introduced to Metallica and from then on my course was set. I moved to Illinois in 2005 and over the course of the last 16 years I have played around the Chicagoland area in several bands. In 2018 Jeff approached me with a new idea of starting a heavy Christian rock band and we have not looked back since. My conversation with God started on a starry night in 2003 and that continues to this day. I live in the far southwest suburbs of Chicago with my wife Sarah and two daughters.
