His musical vision is joyful: “I want my music to be an expression of hope for all of humanity. I want it to bring people together and make them happy. As an artist I feel it is my responsibility to be as honest as I can be through my work. I want people to feel that their existence is intrinsically meaningful, that the God of this universe is one of unfailing love, and that there is always hope.”
