Welcome

Thank you for finding me. This site was created to provide a quick history as well as an audio and visual portfolio of my career and work over the years. I have been fortunate to be involved in music production, composition, stage performance, sound engineering, as well as, motion and digital graphic design.

It was August, of 2000 when I launched my own digital graphics design company, Fiveshock. It is there where for the past 19 years we have “Shock All Five Senses”. I have had the pleasure of working with companies such as Yamaha, SONY, designers from Disney, video game developer, baKno and start-up businesses large and small. Fiveshock has also helped to build brands for best selling authors, top-rated radio hosts, television writers, and celebrity personalities.

In 2017 I launched, The Minstrel, a custom and royalty free music scoring house. It is there, I create music for numerous projects. These include commercials, jingles, documentaries, short films as well as other entertainment mediums.

I currently serve as a worship pastor in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Over the years I have worked for a variety of church fellowships. Having led worship in places such as California, Montana, Colorado, and Canada. My passion has been to cultivate worship communities and help build worship teams from the ground up. I have done this for congregations of all shapes and sizes. My love for worship has also included writing and producing a number of original worship songs and albums. Most recently doing this under the newly launched ministry, House Of Ember.

In my spare time, I rock out with the legendary ’80’s cover band, RetroWave. They are Colorado’s Premier ’80’s Experience. The band plays at a number of venues in the Springs.

So please have a look and listen. I’d love to answer any questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you again, for taking the time to visit.
