What it Takes to Broadcast Live

This is the gold standard, obviously. The NFL on broadcast TV is the best of the best. But after designing and installing two new web broadcast systems this year, this makes me happy. What we did was so far from this, but so much of the “live” aspect is the same. Best line: “Ultimately when it comes down to it everything that we’re trying to do is all about telling a story and giving the producers and directors the tools […]

Yours – New Song!

The sessions are back!  New tunes, covers, etc., etc., from a brand new “studio.” It happens to be my office :). This is a new tune I wrote about missing a certain someone…who might be on a certain TV show…that might be called The Biggest Loser ;). Download here.  Play here: Yours I am yours, you are mine We belong to one another When we hurt our hearts break We run for cover in one another BRIDGE Though you’re far […]

Much thanks to my father-in-law, Keith Curlee, for teaching me this! Download here.  Play here: Stand Up […]

I’m on the outside looking in I […]

Apple of Your Eye

I wrote this lyric after an amazing time of worship.  I had just read Psalm 17:8 where David says, “Keep me as the apple of your eye…”  It’s an incredible thing to know that, no matter what, God loves us beyond anything we have ever known.  As it declares in Ephesians, “…to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.” Download or play:  You Love Me CHORUS: I’m the apple of Your eye You […]

Happy Birthday Mom!

Since we can’t be with my Mom on her birthday this year, I decided to send her her very own “video card” :). Have a great Labor Day Weekend!!!
