I often sit at the intersection of spirituality, the arts, and whole-person health. I spend time in sacred, classical, jazz, rock, country, and bluegrass music. Currently, I am the Director for Arts in Ministry at AdventHealth and the Minister of Music at the Florida Hospital Church in Orlando, FL. I founded the East Tennessee Symphony Orchestra in 2005 with some amazing individuals and in 2018 "retired" to conductor emeritus status. I have a bachelor and master’s degree in music education and just finished my doctorate in Worship Studies from Liberty University in May 2019.
