Sadly, as a child of the funky 70s, Fresh LA grew up in a grove-less environment northeast of St. Louis. Hoping to eventually find his own funk-friendly vibe, he left the family farm in the late 90s to move northward as a professional church planter by day, and recording artist by night. Surprisingly, he succeeded in planting a thriving church and he & T recorded with some of Milwaukee’s best.
As a non-profit professional, he attempted to aide suburbia’s religious conservatives in realizing their pious utopia. This led to numerous experiences with attorneys, politicians, police, counselors and business professionals.
Eventually, he became a sought after problem-solver, traveling coast-to-coast with a leading evangelical advisory group. He also trekked to developing countries to plant schools which offered language, art, music and job skill training. Late in his 26-year career, he awoke to a crazy, funkalishious reality he had longed for since birth. Now, by day he works as a project manager, and vibes out at night as a blogger and writer.
The greatest accomplishment in LA’s life is being married to the love of his life, T-Hollywood, for 26+ years. Together, they have 4 incredible kids that are killing it every day in a wickedly beautiful way. Everyday, is a dilly-dilly adventure!
