Where I serve

God has called me to serve the students at the University of Oregon in Eugene.  You'll typically find me tossing the frisbee around on campus, on the disc golf course, riding my beloved  '78 Raleigh Grand Prix around town or getting lost in the woods somewhere . I have a pretty wild story about how Jesus changed my life and I'd love to tell you about it sometime!

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. My life changed drastically when Jesus asked me to give-up my career in the ski industry as a photographer to serve Him as a missionary on the college campus. I have since been a missionary for 3 years, serving in Colorado, and now Oregon. Since Jesus changed my life for the better, I want nothing more in my life to share the simple message of His sacrificial love and unrestrained forgiveness with everyone I encounter. I look to model Jesus' way of life by going all-in and investing deeply in those right around me, and with them, invest in others, ultimately reaching all of campus. 

Your Impact

The Gospel is a free gift that each human soul is entitled to, because each and every one of our souls were made to be characters in that story. It would be unfair to charge someone to hear the message that their heart was formed to receive and ultimately live out. Yes, the Apostle Paul made tents for a living, but it wasn't long until that became unsustainable. He needed to be fully available to those he was serving, and building tents would only take away from then. He soon relied on the support of communities and persons, like the Philippians. When I answered Jesus' call to join Focus, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to join me in this mission. I've been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus, and would love for you to join. 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 life-changing mission with you.
