Announcement (October 2, 2014):

"Let Me Love" was the First Runner-Up in the "Christian" category for the Second Quarter 2014 "Song of the Year" competition! I am so excited! You can listen to the song on my "Demos" page. It is also available for download and purchase on Loudr, iTunes, and Google Play. Thanks for listening!


I currently have two major music projects on the go: finishing a full-length musical that I am co-writing with the talented Candace Marshall, and recording an album of original Christian music. Meanwhile, I am available to write for other artists' projects. Please contact me if you would like me to write for you, or co-write with you.

I have included a sample of songs I have written or co-written before. These are all demos only. However, if you choose to purchase my music, it allows me to make more professionally-produced demos. Every track purchase helps.

All of my songs are available for licensing.

I have had many people tell me that my songs have a lot of "heart." This is true--I put my heart into my songs, and my songs tell stories that lay the emotions behind them bare. I hope those stories connect with you as you listen to my music.

From my heart to yours,
