About
I am married with two children and I live in Kapaa, Hawaii where I work as a Counselor in a jail. My wife and I are considering joining the Salvation Army as Officers to serve over seas. My passion since childhood has been writing songs and being as I do not play an instrument I have always collaborated. I have a Master's Degree in Pastoral Studies from Multnomah Biblical Seminary and I toured with my College Choir and Contemporary Christian Ensemble on a partial scholarship. I have been the lead singer and front man for many bands, one of which was signed to an Independent Record Label in Hawaii.
