Interim Minister of Youth
Originally born in Buffalo, NY, I’ve moved all over the country, living in seven states from coast to coast. I am married to Autumn, and we have two wild and beautiful children, Tea and Matteus. I became a follower of Jesus in college, and later became passionate about obeying the Great Commission and making disciples, which led me to seminary. I served briefly in the United States Marine Corps, held various positions as a social worker, and I am currently a stay-at-home dad with the privilege of working with the youth and college age students at Crievewood.
