Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, I have always cherished listening to good music. In the sixties and seventies, San Francisco was an exciting and creative environment for music, and I liked a lot of the songs that had provocative messages and good vocals.
I am an architect who learned to play guitar at 18 and just more recently learned to play some piano. In the nineties, I was in a classic rock cover band for several years. However, after losing my interest in doing covers (apart from karaoke), I didn't play any music for the longest time, staying busy with family and career responsibilities.
I have always believed that I had something to say about spirituality and just needed a platform and vehicle to get a positive Christian-based message out to people. For me, it isn't so much about preaching as it is about just identifying with people - their daily challenges, their discouragements, and disappointments, as well as their hopes and dreams.
"Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth; make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise." Psalm 98:4
