Biography
Thomas Carlyle called music "The speech Of Angels", and Longfellow said
"music is the universal language of mankind."

I am excited by hymns of praise about the Almighty. I believe contemporary praise melodies affirm who rules the universe. I am certain that inspirational harmonies prick the hearts of men and women turning the soul heavenward to keep the mind on things above. Christian music brings great joy to my soul!

I was introduced to the world of music as a young member of the Ephesus Boy's Choir at Harlem's historic Ephesus Seventh-day Adventist Church, New York City. The choir was so popular with church members it was decided to invite young boy's community wide to join the re-named choir, the Harlem Boy's Choir, with the former Dr. Walter Turnbull as its director. The rest is amazing history! The many disciplines taught by Dr. Turnbull and his dedicated staff provided learning in reading skills, voice development and music appreciation. My training from those days has a direct and profound influence that affects my musical arrangements today. Most of the boys are college graduates and successful citizens in the world.

Inspired by the Holy Spirit, during those formative years, I promised the Lord, I would make a difference in the world and change lives through the ministry of music.

Currently, my music has me participating in several capacities including the following: the American Guild of Organists; the Market Street SDA Church in Oakland, CA as minister of music; organist for congregations at Rejoice Ministries, Salem Lutheran Home, Fellowship Church, San Francisco, CA Capital City SDA Church, Sacramento, CA and guest organist at my home church in New York City. Now resides in Oakland, California where I am employed as a Port Job Researcher at the Port of Oakland.

I have finished three projects; This Is My Story released 2006, The True Meaning of Christmas released 2008 and Morning Has Broken 2008 and I’ m the process of working on my fourth.

Music is my life and I enjoy all aspects of music from Hip Hop to the Classic. There is a place for all type of music genres and there is an arrangement out there for everyone.

THIS IS MY STORY is a music testimony about life and how the Lord Jesus Christ has blessed me. I pray my music will help you remember that God is a protector and has promised to see us through trials and all our sorrows.
