Originally born and raised in southern Florida, I moved around a bit due to my family being in ministry. I’ve lived in Texas, Oklahoma, & Michigan, and still don’t care about football. Growing up in a variety of ministry contexts, I convinced myself I was never going to work in one. I loved making things. I loved being able to tell stories through music, mixes, design, videos, whatever I could get my hands on. I wanted to matter. To prove I was worth paying attention to. Art seemed to be an answer this, and from my perspective, the Church didn’t really care about art.
Although I came to know Christ when I was 8, I really didn’t start following Him until 2019. God used a ministry called The Salt Company to lead me into deeper discipleship and really heal the jadedness I had towards the Church. During my time here, the Gospel became more clear, Jesus became more real, and the gap that usually exists between art and faith became a place I felt called to.
I have a wife who is just lovely and her name is Grace. We have 2 cats who are okay. I like breakfast. I didn’t go to college. My last name is pronounced ‘shots’. Cereal is for night time. Keep it spicy. :)
