I am a Catholic priest who is a musician. Having recently released my third CD of Catholic folk-rock music, I am looking for exposure for my music for the glory of God!
About
I am a Catholic priest of the diocese of Bridgeport, Connecticut. Originally from Maryland, I have always enjoyed music, having learned to play piano at age 5 and guitar at 16. My musical skills were honed further during my four years at Franciscan University of Steubenville, playing alongside such artists as Brian Kissinger and Paul J. Kim. It was there that I self-published my first CD, "The Sacred Romance". From Steubenville, I went to Mount St. Mary's Seminary off-and-on for the next several years (long story!) but continued to write and play...my claim to fame while there was that Matt Maher opened for my band at a Mount 2000 youth retreat! In 2008 I released my next CD, "Mount Zion." After moving to Connecticut in 2011, I was ordained a priest in 2013 and released my most recent album, "No Lasting City", in 2014. I am currently serving at a large parish in Stamford, CT, working in youth ministry and continuing to praise God through music. I am a huge fan of Contemporary Christian music, enjoying Jars of Clay, Mercy Me, and many more, though I am also a big fan of more indie artists like Judd & Maggie, Clint Felts, Anthony Redfield, and the like. In addition to music and serving the Lord, I enjoy hiking (really anything outdoors) and sports.
