Donnie discovered from a young age his passion to express himself through music. The son of a Michigan radio DJ and concert promoter, he was exposed to the music industry from the beginning. Opportunity came knocking when as a teenager, the church worship team needed a piano player. Donnie found a world of support from mentors that encouraged him to use his talents to lead people into worship. He later served on staff as a lead worship pastor at a church in West Texas. Since moving to Nashville in 2007, Donnie has enjoyed playing with such artists as Adie, Natalie Grant, and Drew Cline. Donnie currently tours as keyboardist with Jeremy Camp. Donnie is thankful for the opportunities he has been given in life and is excited to share his experience with students.
