Where I serve

This year the Lord has called me to serve Him at Eastern Washington University.  You will find me this next year in Cheney, Washington, which is just outside of Spokane.  There I will be an avid EWU Eagles fan and exploring the Pacific Northwest.  I cannot wait to venture out into the wild and spread the Good News of Jesus Christ the best way I know how:  by hiking, camping, boarding, sporting, and sharing this adventure with college men.  I am excited to live the adventure and trust The Way!

My Story

In college I had a re-conversion to the Catholic Faith through a very real experience of the love that Jesus Christ had for me.  After that I was sold that God had a plan for me and it was for my good.  So as I grew in my love for Him, His Church, and His people, I decided that after college I would serve Him as a FOCUS missionary.  I spent two years building His Kingdom at Arizona State.  There I discerned that God was calling me to discern the Vocation of the Priesthood with the Congregation of Holy Cross at Notre Dame.  I spent the last year at Notre Dame being formed and further discerning God's call.  After a year, God placed it on my heart that I was supposed to leave the seminary.  Before I left I prayed about how I could continue to live my life building up His Kingdom and decided that FOCUS is that place for me.  So now I am back on staff with FOCUS and will be in charge of the team this next year at Eastern Washington.

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.
