I grew up in Itasca, IL, a suburb of Chicago, with one sister in a very loving and energetic family of four. In middle school and high school, I was actively involved in youth group. My favorite memories included mission trips, retreats, and the national youth gatherings! It was during these trips that my faith grew the most and when I first felt God pulling me towards working with youth in the church. I attended Concordia University Chicago beginning in fall 2014 and it was there I met my wife and best friend, Zara. I graduated from Concordia in spring 2018 with my Bachelor of Arts degree as a Director of Christian Education (DCE) with a minor in Theology.
I am a big sports fan, whether it is hockey, baseball, football, soccer, golf, or just about any other sport. The Chicago Cubs will forever be my all-time favorite team! Photography, movies, games, food (especially BBQ), and coffee are just a few of the many other things I enjoy.
I am incredibly blessed to be a part of such an amazing church and staff. I look forward to getting to know everyone at Faith and serving the Lord together.
