Speaker, Author, Musician
From small town punk, playing in a basement band (cellar-dwelling cousin of the garage band) with his Fender amp cranked to eleven-stomping on his wah-fuzz pedal, to becoming the Jingle King of Minneapolis, Terry has written and produced thousands of pieces of music for TV commercials…from Target to McDonalds, Pepsi to Perkins, Harleys to Hondas, and Golden Grahams to Billy Graham. He climbed the creative corporate ladder only to find disenchantment once there.
That's when he got proactive. He wrote a book called Blue Collar God/White Collar God. (Thomas Nelson, 2001) He started telling stories about the one product that he knew could change people's lives-a connection with God. He knew because it changed his life.
Now he's taking this story on the road. The Surprise Me Experiment, based on his book, Surprise Me, (Nav Press, 2005) is getting rolled out in business groups, churches, college campuses, and organizations of every kind across America. Be the Surprise (Nav Press, releasing January of 2008) continues that movement with the next step in the Experiments of Spontaneous Faith. Terry spends much of his time traveling and speaking to audiences, encouraging this life of adventure and surprise.
Terry and his wife, Mary, have three daughters, one son-in-law, and a disobedient dog. They live in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
