Where I serve

I am a third year missionary serving at the University of South Alabama.

My Story

I encountered the love of Jesus Christ on September 26, 2009, at about 1:30 in the afternoon. Ever since then I have been chasing after him like he stole something, and my Catholic faith has been the most important thing in my life. My desire to share that faith with others caused me to transfer to the University of Florida for college, and it was there that I encountered FOCUS, and the missionaries at my campus set me ablaze for the new evangelization. I applied to FOCUS, was hired to be a missionary, and the rest is history.

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, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I'd be honored to share this mission with you.
