Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at the University of California, Santa Barbara! My favorite parts about SB are the beach, the food, the sports, and the people. I love combat sports, surfing, cooking, and really most other things! Hit me up whenever you want to hang out.

My Story

When I was a freshman in college, I had no intention of finding the Faith. It was by the Grace of God that a FOCUS missionary approached me and invited me into his life. I began to see that he had something that I wanted, so I said yes to joining his Bible study that semester. It was there that I experienced Jesus Christ as the Son of God; and because of that Bible study, I heard God call me to the Catholic Church as the answer to all of my wildest dreams! As I developed as a disciple of Christ, I began to take others with me. I taught others how to pray the way that a FOCUS missionary had taught me. I began to lead a Bible study like the one that transformed my life. And I even started to teach my best friends how to lead their own Bible study and how to teach others to do the same!

Your Impact

At the beginning of this journey, I believed that Jesus, through me, would change the lives of the men on campus. Now I have seen that my vision was far too small. As the years have gone on, I have seen some of the men who I mentored marry the women of their dreams. Those men and their wives have shown me years after mentoring them that I was not mentoring mere men, I was mentoring the future husbands and fathers of the Church of Jesus Christ.

 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.
