A graduate of Talladega College, he was featured in Ebony magazine (1997) in “The new generation speaks out; Student leaders discuss racism, love, sex and the black male-black female thing.” Throughout college, he continued to serve in ministry as a musician and later became minister of music.

Moreover, in ministry he has served in many capacities – organist, minister of music, chief ministry/operating officer and 1st assistant to the senior pastor.
He has traveled throughout the country helping pastors build sound infrastructures, train leadership, advance their visions and most of all share the gospel of Jesus Christ. In supplement to his ministerial experience he attended Liberty University Baptist Theological Seminary.
