Hello there! I appreciate you taking an interest in what’s going on in my life of adventure! I’m having a blast and look forward to your companionship on this journey. Please say hi - don’t be shy! — and let me know if there is something you’d like to read about here or any question you might have!

Tell Me More

I’m a musician and hope you’re able to check out my songs wherever you stream or download music. After living in Nashville, TN for 25 years, I’m currently living most of the time in Minneapolis, MN, but am thrilled about new doors opening for my music in the UK/European pop world. Just so you know, I’m also a huge fan of baseball, and find immeasurable joy in my photography hobby.

Don’t let anyone ever tell you that your dreams are unreasonable. If your dream isn’t unreasonable, you probably aren’t dreaming big enough!

A little bit more about me…

Living in Nashville for almost 25 years, I saw the rise and fall of many people’s dreams. I studied the entertainment industry and how it works (and doesn’t). I’ve gone after my own dreams and have been met with both incredulous silence and incredible success. I’ve had my songs find audiences all over the world, I’ve acted on national television and in a handful of movies. I’ve had my writing published in dozens of magazines and online sites, and have written several books (some for others, and a couple for myself!). And the radio version of my Live Hope Minute is heard in 300 radio markets around the U.S. and Canada.

I’m continually on the lookout for opportunities to learn something new, meet interesting people, and experience all the joy that life has to offer. I’ll keep you posted how that all goes down…
