Worship and Arts Pastor
After serving as Arts in Worship Pastor for churches in Kansas and Indiana, I am grateful to participate as a staff member at Denver First Church. Some of the highlights of my journey have included leading worship for the General Assembly of the Church of the Nazarene, Nazarene Youth Congress, and touring with David Jeremiah's Turning Point Ministry.
Not many people would know that I enjoy a good fattoush salad every now and again.
If given the opportunity, I would vacation to China because I would be taller than many people.
When I was young, I couldn't decide what I wanted to be when I got older--there were many occupational choices on the list. So far, I have been fortunate to cross several off the list.
My favorite toys as a child were the Smurfs--I'm not sure why...
My favorite TV show is America's Funniest Home Videos because we enjoy watching it as a family.
I became the pianist at my church at age 11 and have played in every church I’ve attended since then, including 22 years at DFC. I attended Olivet Nazarene University where I met my husband David, we have one son Todd. I have been a piano teacher for over 35 years.
If I could vacation anywhere in the world, I would go to Palm Desert, CA. I love the spa there.
When I was little, I wanted to be a teacher.
My favorite toy was a small stove that heated up, I had a little kitchen and would heat up lifesavers and have tea parties.
My favorite TV show is Diners, Drive-ins and Dives; favorite books are Pride and Prejudice and the Bible.

Director of Music and Media Support
Almost a Denver native, I have been serving in a number of churches along the Front Range over the years, and am grateful to now be serving at Denver First Church. I met my wife Tahla while studying Music at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley. We’ve been married since 1983 and have two grown sons.
While growing up, I had my heart set on being a High School Band Director. But God had other plans!
As a child, my favorite toys were Hot Wheels cars, especially the Sizzlers, with the rechargeable batteries. My twin brother and I would run Hot Wheels track all over the house as often as we could.
My favorite movies are the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and the Bourne trilogy. As far as music goes, Jazz is my favorite, with a list of artists too long to mention here. Beyond that, I’ll listen to anything – well, almost anything.
My wife and I have a favorite vacation spot in Estes Park, CO. Not too far from home, but far enough that it affords us a nice break, and rest.
