What is the most fun THING you ever DID?

I was involved in a life-changing Youth Group camp that I attended then helped direct for a total of 16 years.  There's no place like it.

HOw did you get interested in Music?

In the 3rd grade, we all took part in a musical. The lead was absent one day and I volunteered to sing her part.  Mrs. Gladdys asked to meet my mother and told her to put me in Vocal Training immediately - that her son had a gift.  From then on, you couldn't get me to shut up.  I sang about everything, everywhere.

Who would you say has most inspired you? 

Elvis! He was such a game-changer.

What do you consider your greatest accomplishment so far?

Moving out of Wheeling, WV and into the Big Apple at age 18 and surviving this city.  It's been 12 years.  I am a real New Yorker!
