Drew has shared the Gospel in house concerts as well as for Regional events.  Touring nationally in 1994 and 1995, Drew helped lead worship in numerous churches.  While attending Concordia University in St. Paul, Minnesota to broaden his knowledge of writing and music, Drew volunteered regularly at Michael W. Smith's "Rocketown" in Shoreview, Minnesota in 1995, performing live music in the "Coffee House," as well as listening and relating to the teens and parents who attended.

Receiving two Gospel Music Association awards: The Academy Of Gospel Music Arts' Spotlight 1996 Regional Finalist and Song of 1996 Regional Finalist, Drew went on to record, release, and tour his first solo record, At Square One, in September 1997, performing at the LCMS "Called To Be" Youth Gathering in Atlanta, Georgia in 1998.

Following God's call to relocate, Drew moved to a new town and a new parish in December 1997.  Six days later, Drew met his wife, Erin. (Matthew 6:33, Psalm 37:4).  After writing several songs about this new season, Drew focused more on marriage and family and less on music.

God provided a way for Drew to get back into the studio in 2009 and 2010, recording two singles: "Innocent Eyes" and “Here With Me,” as well as releasing two albums of music: The Chosen Ones and The Erin Trilogy in 2023.

Married 25 years this July, Drew stays busy being a Dad to their three boys, investing, exercising, songwriting, blogging, podcasting, and touring - releasing projects when he can.  [In addition to having a background in Television, Radio, Theater, and Movies (both in the spotlight and behind the scenes), Drew is also writing a book about shame and our Father's patient love for us.]
