THINGS I LIKE:

In N' Out Burger
​They just need to open up a location in Seattle.

Salt and Vinegar Pringles
​I won't say whether or not I've ever eaten an entire can in one sitting. It might have happened.

Chung's Teriyaki, Silverdale, WA
​Half beef. No veggies. Brown rise. Side of teriyaki. So good!

Well Water Design
The best web-design and hosting - at least on THIS planet.

MY GEAR:

Alicia's Keys
A wonderfully realistic virtual grand piano from Native Instruments. Use it as a plug-in with Logic, MainStage, Cubase or whatever DAW you prefer. You can hear me playing Alicia's Keys right here.

Yamaha's CP88 keyboard
Fantastic weighted action. Fantastically realist grand piano sounds, super intuitive interface. Easy layering of sounds.

Todoist
Kind of a random thing to include here, but I've found Todoist to be a fantastic task manager. It helps me organize my many and varied responsibilities as a worship leader, songwriter, husband, father, tall person! Syncs between desktop and iOS devices. Great tool!

Chord Pro in Planning Center Online
I'm happy to acknowledge that I have a high geek factor and LOVE creating chord charts using Chord Pro in Planning Center Online. You know you've downloaded a chart and found there are mistakes or misplaced chords, right? Please check out what Chord Pro can do for you. Lower your frustration level with inaccurate charts, create your own arrangements, add band notes, singer cues, etc. Enough said.
