I was born into a military family and have had the opportunity to live in a number of places in the world. I graduated from the University of Virginia with a degree in Environmental Sciences, have received a certificate in Children, Youth, and Family Ministry from Wartburg Seminary, Dubuque, Iowa, and a Master’s of Divinity from Luther Seminary, Saint Paul, Minnesota. I have served the church for over 20 years in in youth ministry and pastoral ministry.

My wife, Aleshia, and I are proud parents of four girls and enjoy watching them grow, spending time with family across the Midwest, and exploring the world.
