As ACB’s Praise Band leader, I am very happy to have this opportunity to bring more people to Christ through praise music at the American Church in Berlin.

I first came to the ACB with ACB Chamber Choir Director, Travis Shaw. I immediately felt at home and have had the chance to accompany all of ACB’s choirs over the past four years: theChamber Choir, Contemporary Choir and Gospel Choir. I co-founded the 50 member gospel choir Marvelous Praise, and currently play in my Christian praise band, Abraxas. I feel I am most at home when playing gospel and jazz piano, but I also enjoy playing alto saxophone and guitar. The ACB Praise Band has been a great new challenge for me. I was happy to help start a contemporary worship service when I was asked to in 2014.

From designing worship fliers to recruiting musicians, I have enjoyed most every minute of this work! I lead the Praise Band and Choir from the piano/keyboard, and I am blessed to work with this wonderful group of musicians and singers.
