George grew up in a very musical home, his mother was a gifted opera singer and his dad played jazz piano and upright bass. At age 24, George’s musical aspirations and life was permanently altered through several events that led to his “becoming a Christian on purpose”. Jesus introduced Himself to George!
Almost immediately he became involved in ministry. Over time the Lord refined George as he served in various churches and ministries as a worship leader/musician, youth leader, counselor, and evangelist.
In 1988 God brought about an opportunity for George to build and run a world-class recording studio for a local church. There he recorded and produced many local, national and a few world-renowned Christian artists and ministries.
In 1993 George ventured out himself as a Christian singer / songwriter. He recorded an ill-fated but nationally distributed CD called “Walls of Freedom”. He toured locally and regionally sharing the stage with several well-known Christian artists of that time.
Late in 1994 the call to a different ministry became apparent. George began attending Calvary Chapel of Old Bridge New Jersey, and though he served minimally with the worship team and in their recording studio he was absolutely enamored with – and heavily influenced by verse by verse through the bible teaching. This led to him being ordained and serving to this day as pastor and worship leader of Calvary Chapel of Montclair New Jersey.
Music has never ceased to be a part of George’s life and ministry, he is now recording and releasing worship songs written and used at Calvary Montclair over the years, and he has plans to release a new contemporary Christian music CD later in the year.

Ashley remembers thinking when she was a kid, “wow… I bet it would be fun to make people laugh as your job.” Originally from California’s East Bay Area, she began studying music at a young age, playing piano in sonata competitions.
After graduating from UC Santa Barbara with a degree in voice and experience performing with Opera Santa Barbara, it was not a difficult decision to make the move to New York City. Ashley performs all over the Big Apple, be it singing or acting.
She has enjoyed traveling the world as a singer on board a six-star cruise ship and is thrilled now to be back in New York.
Multi-talented Rachel Mason drops by to discuss The Lives of Hamilton Fish, her award-winning cinema rock opera inspired by a true story. Rachel is a filmmaker, sculptor, songwriter and performer. She has written three operas, recorded ten full-length albums, and performed at numerous art museums and other venues, including the Detroit Museum of Contemporary Art and School of the Arts in Chicago. Winner of the Best Picture Award at the 2014 New England Underground Film Festival, The Lives of Hamilton Fish deals with two men with the same name who died a day apart in 1936. One of them was a serial killer, the other a descendant of one of the most prominent families in New York State. Their obituaries were published together on the front page of a newspaper. Told entirely through songs in the newspaper editor's voice, the story mixes the surreal with historical facts. Film critic Phil Hall calls this independent offering the best movie he's seen during 2014.
