David came back to a new, deeper commitment to Jesus Christ about the same time he graduated from Pepperdine University with a BA in Music Theory-Composition. He later completed his masters degree in Religion, taught music for two years at Hope University in Fullerton, CA and then moved from music ministry ino being a Senior Pastor.
It was while preaching for a small church in Riverside, CA that his musical interests were re-ignited. David began arranging newer Christian Praise and Worship music and teaching it to the worship leader and praise team so that team could teach the new music to the congregation. The result was a rebirth of his own interest and skills and he began composing original songs for worship and praise.
In 2001 David founded Mere Dog Music publishing company and joined ASCAP and CCLI (Christian Copyright Licensing Inc.) as a writer-publisher. He has now returned to his love of music and is re-releasing his songs and composing new ones for a wider audience.
