Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students as a campus missionary with FOCUS. I am a "Varisty Catholic" missionary, which means I will be serving student-athletes. This is my first year as a missionary and it is an honor to serve at the University of Florida. I work on a team of 4 missionaries in total and I cannot wait to see where the Lord takes our ministry this year.

My Story

While I was in college at Georgia Tech my life was radically changed. I was a student-athlete on the Georgia Tech Football Team, and I believed that my identity was built on my value as a college football player. I was blessed to have teammates who helped me discover my identity as a son of God, and I began to encounter Jesus Christ through my relationships and prayer. I decided to enter the Catholic Church during my sophomore year at the Easter Vigil, and it was the greatest decision I ever made. Upon graduating I had multiple job offers in secular roles, but I felt a gentle tug from God to go to back to the college campus and invest in student-athletes the way I had been invested in. Today, I get to form authentic friendships with many students - the same type of friendships that changed my life. My conversion is still ongoing every day as I am being pursued by the Lord and I love getting to invite students into this beautiful relationship.

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.
