Where I serve

Currently, I serve as a first year missionary at the University of Northern Iowa with my team pictured below! You'll typically find me on campus with students, at sidecar coffee, or at St. Stephen the Witness Catholic Student Center. This is FOCUS' first year at UNI! Feel free to call, text, or email me at (402)-981-7505 & [email protected]


My Story

During my time in college at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln I was working the formula that everyone said would make you happy. I had good grades, friends, a girlfriend, and was going to all the fun parties. Yet, I felt empty inside. Through some great friendships at the Newman center and a providential encounter with a FOCUS missionary who took interest in me, I gradually opened my heart to Christ and allowed him to transform my life. Now, as a missionary on a college campus I hope to do the same for other young men: To show them the love Christ has for them and what it means for them to be Catholic men in today's world. 

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 many amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus. "Some give by going, others go by giving."

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