He currently serves as the Director of Music of Wesley United Methodist Church where he also teaches vocal enrichment classes for youth and young adults. He has developed an eclectic musical taste but primarily enjoys Gospel music because of its dynamic power to capture the emotions of the people, meet them at their point of need, and transcend them to a place of solemness. Gospel music has a way of bringing people closer together, electrifying hearts, challenging minds, and embracing souls. It is his hope that students will see Gospel music and the Spiritual idiom as a way to tap into a new wave of creativity and use it as an opportunity to make a difference in their community. Lawrence Township has been endowed with wonderful talent and he looks forward to being able to meet students at their point of need, help shape their musical experience, and excel them toward excellence.
