ABOUT

EMAIL ME AT: fargo.guitarist[a]gmai|[dot]com

I love playing rock, southern rock, classic rock and a bit of jazz but spend the most of my "gig" time playing contemporary Christian and worship music. In 2018 alone, I'll have played over 200 different songs live! Believe me, being on worship bands week to week is no easy task.

I'm humble and get along well with others.

I have been playing on worship teams for about 20 years now, and have lead or have been on a team at various churches and venues/concerts/productions as well:
- Salem E-Free Church, Fargo & Moorhead
- Valley Christian Church, Moorhead
- Bethel E-Free Church, Fargo
- Hope Lutheran Church, Fargo
- Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Fargo
- University Lutheran Center, Fargo
- Peace Lutheran Church, Fargo
- Our Savior's Lutheran Church, Moorhead
- Cornerstone Ministries, downtown Fargo
- Glad Tidings Assembly, West Fargo
- Morris Community Church
- Inter-varsity Christian Fellowship, UMM
+numerous other venues, concerts, productions
