Jobs before Sanctus Real: Well, my most recent job I had before Sanctus is still almost a full time job now.  I do a lot of work when we aren't on tour and sometimes from the road.  I am a Music Producer, Recording Engineer and Mix engineer and I have my own studio.

Favorite Sanctus Real Song: I have a couple. Old Sanctus: Everything About You, New Sanctus: Head In The Fight and I Need You (Its a tie)

Brief Testimony: I came to know Christ as a child.  I also was baptized when I was 12 once my parents had taught me what baptism was and what it meant to publicly declare your relationship with Christ.  From there on out I was a normal kid and in High School went through a rebelious phase.  I never strayed from my faith.  I just made some bad decisions.  As I grew older I grew stronger in my faith and I have learned to lean on God more and not worry as much about finances, health etc.  He has taken me on a cool ride through learning my career to marriage and to now the last couple years with the band.

Favorite Bible Verse:  1 Corinthians 10:13
"No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it."

Random info: I love dogs but don't own one.  I love being on the lake on a boat but can't ski.  I love being in the sun but burn easily.  I love hiking and camping but don't like sleeping in small tents.  I've had my nose broken twice while playing baseball as a kid.  I want to run for Mayor of Adrian MI some day (The town I live in).
