Where I serve

God has called me to make disciples of all nations - starting in my golden home state of California! I am a first-year missionary at the University of California, Santa Barbara. You can find me reading Ernest Hemingway, talking about the Titanic, letting my team teach me how to cook, or surfing.

My Story

A Focus missionary invited me to an intimate relationship with Christ while I was a student at the University of Southern California (Fight On!) and my life has not been the same since. It is such an adventure being a faithful disciple of Jesus and a member of His universal Church. After becoming close friends with the missionaries at USC, I knew that the Lord was calling me into full-time mission as well. My number one desire is to meet my Creator one day and bring the people I love with me. I cannot wait to meet many of those people at UCSB, and I am honored to be among the chosen to bring the Gospel to the students there, by investing in their friendship in the same way that my own missionaries did for me. 

Your Impact

It is an absolute privilege to be completely reliant on God, following in the footsteps of my favorite intercessor and early church Father to whom I've had a devotion since I was eleven: St. Peter. I'm blessed to experience the closeness with the early Church's model, seeing how the Lord has provided throughout history and will continue to provide through His people's spiritual and financial support - starting with the people in my own life. I would not have been able to answer the call to join Focus had it not been for the prayers and support of the mission partners of the missionaries at my college campus USC, and I am delighted to invite others into mission with me at UCSB so one day someone else can say that about my own mission team! If the Lord might be calling you to partner with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will reach out. It would be an honor to have you on mission with me!
