I am a single man navigating the thrills and challenges of being in my mid-20’s. I am the oldest of three boys and have a close relationship with both of my brothers as well as my Mom and Dad. My Mom is the saint of the family as she has gracefully managed to put up with the high levels of personality, intense competition, and constant joking between us four boys over the last 20 years. I was born and raised in the North Phoenix area, attending Horizon High School before I shipped out to California for college.

I grew up in a Christian home and attended church regularly as a kid. At that point, Jesus was just a character in a story to me. It wasn’t until I entered into the Junior High Ministry at my church that I learned Jesus was a real character in MY story. The moment I can point to of truly accepting Christ is at a Summer Camp in Sedona. We had been up there for a week having fun, meeting new friends, worshipping, and learning more about who God is. Our final night at the camp, our Youth Pastor preached on what Christ did for us on the Cross. It was at that moment a switch flipped and I came to know Jesus as my Lord and Savior.

I’m the Youth Ministry Director.
