WHAT I BELIEVE
I believe that God’s character defines beauty
and that God’s creation demonstrates that beauty.
I believe that as a person with the image of God, I can recognize and treasure that beauty in countless manifestations.
I believe that beauty exists in order,
in brilliant color,
in open space,
I find all of these beauties in music, and
I believe that when I create music that captures, even poorly, a sense of the sublime,
I reflect the beauty of my Lord.
This is my aim as a composer, as a musician, and as a person.
