My life has been full of spending time with friends and family, playing sports (any and all) but especially baseball and basketball, exploring the outdoors in any fashion, and through it all learning more about the deep crazy love God has for me! I first came to Grace Church when I started my first year at Western Washington University. I will graduate with a B.S. in Geology in March of 2018. I began as a volunteer in the youth group in 2014 and then as the intern for the middle school group the following year. I began working as the Youth Director for high school and middle school ministries at the end of 2016 and am so incredibly excited to be able to hangout and be a part of students lives on a daily basis and provide a safe place to come, be real, have a ton of fun and be shocked by the Gospel. Personally, I have been deeply encouraged and challenged by youth leaders and my youth pastor as I grew up and I desire to be a true intentional friend, a positive influence and challenger, and a humble leader for those God places in my life.
I married an incredible and beautiful woman named Brooke in July of 2016 and I am so blessed to have her as my wife. She has a God-given gift of connecting with people in a real way because of her golden heart that is fully God’s. She has taught me, and continues to teach me, more about myself and the grace of God! We enjoy good food, hikes, hammocking, board games, a good movie, sports, and much more. We are so blessed to be able to be a part of the youth ministry at Grace as we both have been struck with the incredible truth of the life altering Gospel of Jesus Christ and are living out of the love God has for me!
