Music is something I discovered at a young age. Or, maybe I should say, it discovered me. 

Like many kids growing up in Canada, I dreamed of becoming a pro hockey player—or to at least have some sort of role in the sports world. I’ve always been a hockey fanatic (go Avs, go!), I'm an avid tennis player, and sports is the lense through which I see most of life. 

But, at the end of the day, music became my career. 

It all began when I was 14 years old, playing in local rock bands, at church on Sunday mornings, and writing songs whenever I had the chance. It grew from there. 

As is the case with any worthwhile journey, there have been obstacles along the way. Most of those challenges have presented themselves as health setbacks, at times seemingly insurmountable. But, thanks be to God, He has gotten me through. And still gets me through. 

Two albums, two singles, and countless nights on stage later, I wouldn’t trade this journey for anything. And, I still feel like I’m just beginning. I’ve always said that if I’ve been a voice of hope to one person, I’ve done my job right. Whether you are a first time visitor, or a longtime supporter of my music, I hope you leave this brief visit more encouraged than before you came. 

The best is soon to come, friends. . .and you are loved.
