I come from a family of musicians, so I started playing and writing music from a young age. As I grew older, I appreciated more and more the way that music could be used to worship God. I was initially introduced to multicultural worship music at an Intervarsity conference in college on racial reconciliation. Most recently, I’ve been interested in how faithfully remembering our unique and collective stories is crucial for honoring various cultures in worship. When Angie asked me to play with Menders, I was thrilled to get to worship with friends who also had deep convictions about the value of multicultural worship. And I’ve loved the journey since.
