I am a Southern California native and grew up appreciating and absolutely loving the outdoors. I have a passion for surfing, design, and cooking. I accepted Christ when I was in middle school and have since had a desire to serve and talk about Jesus and the Bible.
In 2013, I joined the United States Army. During that time, I deployed to various regions around the world that include the Middle East and West Africa. I served as a combat advisor and Sergeant in the Military Police Corps. Through many challenges and incredible relationships, my time in the Armed Forces has developed me as a leader and strengthened my faith and trust in the Lord.
After my service I returned to Southern California to work on my degree and to be closer to family. I was blessed to find the incredible community at Mission Hills Church. After serving in various roles in youth ministry, and men's ministry, and local outreach, I soon realized God’s plan for me was ministry leadership. When taking a sabbath, you can typically find me surfing at Doheny with students, ministry leaders, and Pastor Nick.
