    My name is Andrew. 

    I'm a worship leader, teacher, musician, skateboarder, scientist, and son of God. 

    I play a few instruments (upright bass, trumpet, guitar) and I love to write songs and spend time outside. 

    I was born in 1986 in Indianapolis, IN. I grew up in the church and ended up learning a lot about Jesus but never knew Him personally until my freshman year at Purdue University. 

    The first week of classes I told Him that something needed to change between us. I was prepared to throw my life away into an endless spiral of alcohol, drugs, and sex... unless He could reveal Himself to me and show me something to live for.

    ​Words fall short to describe what happened in that moment but I could honestly sense that He cared about me. I experienced His love and grace in an inexpressible way and I have never been the same! I started living life with the Holy Spirit and earnestly reading the Bible. 

    After three years in college I had been double majoring in French and Biophysics because I wanted to teach science at a French university. In the summer of 2007 a professor from France came and visited me at Purdue.

    I was filling out the paperwork after he had left and I heard a voice say, "Walk away." I looked up and no one was there. "Walk away", he said again. I knew the Holy Spirit was telling me not to pursue that career any longer, so I immediately ripped all the sheets in half and threw them away. I had no idea what I would do instead; all I knew is that I had clearly heard that that was not the right path for me. 

    Later that summer I was on a mission trip in Jamaica and I began playing guitar and leading worship. My spirit came alive and the floodgates of my soul flung wide open when I began to play and sing--this was what I was created for!

    I began leading worship at my college church and in the fall of 2008 I graduated with a Chemistry degree. It wasn't long after that that I met the girl who would became my wife and I accepted a staff position at a new church plant in Indianapolis as the worship pastor. I also began teaching high school science. During this season I began writing songs for the church I was leading and started the band "augustus" in 2012. 

    After five years as a worship pastor my wife and I moved to Memphis, TN for a short period of time and we now live in Chattanooga. 

    I continue to lead worship, write music, and speak on spiritual matters. I love investing in worship leaders and teaching them how to be servant leaders and instructing them in all that Jesus taught. My life has been radically transformed by Jesus and I want to be excellent in communicating the Gospel with my entire life.
