I was raised and currently live in Austin, Texas, the Live Music Capital of the World and the coolest city on the planet. If I have it my way, I will never leave. I am the third of six children, having three sisters and two brothers, all of whom I am extremely close with. We were raised by the best parents any child could ever ask for. I am still single and childless, but I have nieces and nephews that I adore to the moon and back again. I became a Christian at age 14, and it is by far the most defining event of my entire life. I graduated from Texas A&M (WHOOP!) and am a die-hard Aggie. I worked for Dell Inc. for 14 years, and just recently resigned to pursue writing and songwriting on a full-time basis. I am blessed with an abundance of friends from all areas of my life, who enrich my journey beyond measure. I think I sometimes come across as cool, but I am really a giant geek at heart: I have the "Pete's Dragon" soundtrack on my Ipod, I am a member of the Olivia Newton-John Fan Club, I didn't have any fashion sense until age 30, and I have been trying to lose 5 pounds for 15 years. Every day I strive to get better at loving Jesus and loving people.
