I was born in Jacksonville, Alabama on October 6, 1979. Being the son of a minister we moved a lot so I have lived in several different places; Alabama, Kentucky, Virginia, and North Carolina. Moving so often was sometimes difficult yet good for me in a way because I was able to meet a lot of different people and gather many interests. My parents bought me my first guitar when I was twelve and I've been hooked ever since. I graduated from a school in Durham, NC called Cresset Christian Academy. There I was involved in several sports along with playing music.
After high school I searched for what to do with my life in various places but God brought me to a small southern town where my parents had relocated; Morehead City, NC. It's a pretty nice place to live with its beautiful beaches and surfing (when Brandon can get me up early enough). My dad is now a teacher and high school basketball coach and my mom is a pre-school director. They are awesome parents who are very supportive of my dreams and aspirations. It is here that I met my fellow band mates Brandon, Josh, and Caleb and joined Allyson hymn. Shortly after that Decyfer was born. I know becoming a part of these three guys lives is a part of God's plan. We all have the same vision and are pouring our soul out to create uplifting music that has no boundaries and reaches audiences across the spectrum.
