Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at the University of Cincinnati.  Our first year at UC is a wrap and we are excited to return for a second year!  You can find me at St. Monica St. George on Sundays and around campus every other day of the week.  I am always down to play racquetball, lawn games, toss a baseball, or go to a UC or FCC game on campus.

My Story

As a disciple, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ.  I was raised a cradle Catholic and was blessed with a solid foundation of formation.  In August of 2011, the Lord impacted my life in a profound way on an airstrip in Madrid during the final night of World Youth Day.  I experienced the personal love of Jesus kneeling in the dirt in front of Him truly present in the Eucharist among two million brothers and sisters in Christ.  That was the moment I chose to go all in with my faith and strive to put God in the center of my life.  My life has been transformed by Jesus and it is an adventure that is much better than anything I could've imagined.  I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel.

In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I believe serving as a missionary to college students is the best way to positively impact our culture and leverage my passion and talents.  Future husbands, fathers, priests, coaches, and leaders are being formed on campus. I pray the Lord will use me to introduce these men to the person of Jesus Christ and build them up in virtue. 

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. I've been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with me and joining my team, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment my email is [email protected] I'd be honored to share this mission with you and have you on my team.
