I dove into art nearly twenty years after a diving accident left me a quadriplegic. Sparked by a visit to a Gatlinburg gallery filled with Cao Yong’s magical paintings, so began my improbable journey from a paralyzed teenager to an artist.  In this tiny gallery, for the very first time, I would see oil paintings displayed in the proper light. I could feel the heat from the flickering candle on the romantic setting for two in Yong's "VILLA ENCANTADA."  This never before painter was hooked!

In the 30+ years since the last time  I walked,  I have accomplished enough for multiple lives. It adds it up to something like this; 30+ years as a quadriplegic + 25 years as "The DJ on Wheels" + 20 years as a husband + 15 years as a multimedia specialist with the USAF + 12 years as a grandfather + five years as the Country Reporter, which all equals ONE great life! I currently only have a few boxes unchecked on my bucket list, but I'm sure I can find a new one. 

Today,  I enjoy speaking to small and large groups in hopes of inspiring them to make the most of their lives by sharing my love of life.

Along with public speaking, painting is my way to expressively escape the confines of my bed and chair. Art is a way to control my often severe neuropathic pain caused by more than three decades of nerve damage related to my accident and being in a wheelchair.

By purchasing my artwork, you will have a keepsake for yourself or to share with others as a reminder that God can turn any tragedy into a showpiece of His Grace.

If you are looking for an engaging speaker willing to share his faith and testimony of the many challenges life has thrown at me, I am currently scheduling dates for 2018 and 2019. I cover many of today's most challenging topics; education, faith, discrimination, and domestic violence to name just a few of the narrative that has been my life.  I weave humor and emotion throughout each inspiring event.

Over the past 30 years, I have spoken at hundreds of events. By tailoring my presentations, I try to challenge each audience member. Seeking to inspire both the young and old, the confident and insecure, the strong in faith and lastly those needing a reason to believe.

A Whisper Campaign: With an invitation to speak at your group or organization, your support will help spread the Word of God's grace to your audience and help reach hundreds of others through a Whisper Campaign.

By sharing my story with others. Today, sharing a story through social media one can reach not hundreds but thousands and hundreds of thousands of others. By sharing my website, artwork, and story, you can positively impact the lives of your family, friends, and even strangers!

 Lastly, through prayer! I ask that you keep my family and me in your thoughts and prayers. As I embark on this new journey and stage of my life, I need your prayers more than ever before.

I would love to learn more about you and the others that have visited my home on the web. Please drop me a line and sign up for the upcoming newsletter. Beginning in the first week of April, I will be sending out a monthly newsletter. I plan to have an encouraging message, an update on my latest art project, and the other things in my life that others may find of interest. Those that sign up can expect to receive one newsletter the first week of each month and one bimonthly report. I do not share any personal information with others and it anytime you can unsubscribe.

May God bless you and your family. Remember, God has a plan for your life, but it is up to you to carry it out. Life is full of unexpected bumps, turns, highs, and lows. Life is not easy, but it is sure worth living!

If you've made it this far, I would love for you to join me and we continue this journey together. Hop aboard by visiting,

God bless,
