Director of Grace Multiplied
What do you do at St. Paul’s?
I am the director of the worship band, “Grace Multiplied”. I also prepare the worship slides presentations. Lastly, I am the only member on staff with one foot, which means that I am the one responsible for putting my foot in train doors when we’re running to catch trains and the doors are closing too soon.
How big is your family?
I have a lovely wife, Michelle, and two rambunctious-but-amazing dogs that I love to no end.
What do you do for fun?
My passion is songwriting, and I play bass in a band outside of church. I also enjoy art history.
What’s your favorite kind of music?
This is a hard question for me to answer. I guess the simple answer is rock/pop, but it’s changing all the time. The staples for me are British invasion bands like The Zombies, and then seventies power-pop like Joe Jackson and Talking Heads, and I also love piano jazz like Vince Guaraldi. And also older Pop/R&B like Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder etc etc. Lady GaGa has been in my car stereo lately.
Who are your favorite authors/books?
John Irving, Music/Actor biographies.
What do you get at Starbucks?
Shaken iced-tea lemonade with green tea- unsweetened.
