Art began playing drums in his Dad's church in fifth grade and was convinced he would be a drummer. He then got a guitar in the sixth grade and after his dad taught him the only four chords a worship leader needs to know, guitar very quickly became his favorite instrument.
He began leading worship for the children's ministry and youth ministry at First Woodway in Waco, TX when he was in high school, then after graduating he joined the youth staff as the worship leader.
He went to Baylor University and continued leading for the youth as well as serving in the Sunday morning worship band from 2011-2015.
In 2015 he moved to the Dallas area and served as a worship leader at Community Life Church. 10 months later, Art felt God calling him back to Waco to help start and lead worship for The Venue at First Woodway. In addition to leading there, he travels with his band leading for various events.
Art is married to Maddie, the love of his life, and has a dog named Tatum.
