Married to the ever so beautiful and incredibly talented Brittany Smith and proud Dad to Jadwin, Aslan, & Tatum - I am a Nashville native and have been serving as the leader of Eastgate's youth ministry since 2009. I am thoroughly passionate about music and am a musician and songwriter, mainly utilizing these abilities in Eastgate's worship ministry. I'm a big sports buff - whether participating or spectating - and among other hobbies, I'm somewhat of a gear head when it comes to car repairs! I love our church and am very excited about the years ahead of us.

What quality/trait do you admire most?
Patience, humility, passion and boldness.
I am TOO ticklish. People find this hilarious. Me, not so much. Also, being interrupted in the middle of completing a task.
Most traumatic experience:
Almost drowning in the ocean on a school beach trip my junior year in high school. Also, rebuilding my '92 Honda Civic's transmission.
Some of your biggest mistakes:
I don't have many regrets, but most of mine consist of being fearful and not stepping out when God has called me to.
Favourite Vacation Spot:
The beach is nice, but honestly I enjoy a good road trip. It doesn't have to be a fancy destination. Anywhere with my wife that involves having no agenda and eating copious amounts of food is the ultimate vacation ;)
Would love to write worship music that could help people understand the life-changing love that the Father has for them. Would also love to pastor a church one day.
Favorite TV shows, Books or Movies:
TV Shows: The Office, ESPN and basically any professional sports game thats on.
Books: Mere Christianity, A Tale of Three Kings, The Shack, Alpha: Questions of Life.
Movies: Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, The Count of Monte Cristo, Space Jam - to name a few.
Getting to spend time with the people in my life, writing music, ULTIMATE FRISBEE, bass and acoustic guitar and running - when there's time.
Hillsong United, Bethel, Jude Smith, Coldplay, Jack Johnson, John Mayer TRIO, Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver,
Burger Up is the BOMB. Get the Woodstock!
