My music career professionally began in college when I had the opportunity to perform concerts throughout the world. Favorite cities where I performed were Belo Horizonte (Brazil), Prague (The Czech Republic), and Vienna (Austria).

Performance doors started opening to Broadway, but the roles that came my way were an affront to Christ. Although the possible fortune and fame thrown my way tempted me, the Lord protected this sinner from myself and I looked at other ways to use my talent. The opportunity to combine my gifts in music and theater with a newly discovered ability of writing allowed me to author the plays "Haven's Hope" and "Secret Heir." This exciting avenue allowed me to meet and work with some of the biggest names in musical theater. However, the comerciality of Broadway tried to change the themes and tone of my work, so again my Heavenly Father kept me from tarnishing my testimony.

Evaluating my life and career the Lord challenged me and made clear that all I do "it shouldn't be about me." This new revelation led me to form Siloam Eyes Ministries. Combining my own record label with the assistance of Daywind Music Group, I recorded my debut album "Even in Shadow." The reason for the title "Even in Shadow," is no matter how dark this world gets there is always the presence of light - that Light is Jesus. Each day with the news and current events, it feels like the world's crashing down around us. It might seem as if we're living in "the end times," but we can always find peace from knowing that Christ loves us, protects us, and in Him only there is hope.
