Where did you grow up?
I spent all of my formative years right here in Katy, Texas. While I was born and have lived elsewhere, I consider Katy to be my hometown.
When did you start following Christ?
My journey began at a young age, but I really began to grasp the weight of following Jesus around age 14.
What is your education?
B.A. in Christian Studies – Double Major in Philosophy and Biblical Studies
Currently pursuing an Adv. M.Div from Southern Seminary
Married to my wonderful wife Erin. We currently do not have children, so we are way too into our white-lab Wendell.
What kind of work have you done?
HEB Cashier, Law-Firm Intern, College Admissions Counseler, Technology Coordinator, Apartment Manager, Photographer, and Pastor.
Name something interesting about yourself:
In a previous pastorate, Erin and I lived in a parsonage that was in the middle of the church’s parking lot! Our backyard was a median.
Some of my Favorite Movies:
Neither my wife nor I are big movie people. Nevertheless, you’d catch us watching documentaries, animated movies, and the occasional rom-com.
Some of my Favorite Music:
Bon Iver, Noah James, The Modern Post, Jon Foreman, Josh Garrels, Andy Mineo, and Sam Cooke to name a few.
Some of my Heroes:
Obviously Jesus is the one whom all believers strive to be like.
But people like – Wendell Berry (yes, our dog is named after him), MLK Jr., C.S. Lewis and many others have helped to flesh out what it means to faithfully follow Him today.
TV I can’t miss:
We’re not very big T.V. people, but you’d find us watching House, New Girl, and The Office on Netflix.
