I grew up in the city of San Jose, California and met Christ at the age of 10. I moved out to Iowa to go to Bible College at Faith Baptist and by Junior year was calling Iowa home. I have done everything from polishing floors to tutoring math to new construction plumbing, but am very excited to serve as New Hope's Youth Pastor. Serving alongside me is my bride, Hanna.
Things I’m Thankful For
Hanna - who challenges me and makes everything more fun. My Family - both back home and here at New Hope. And the chance I get to hang out with students and make it my job!
Cooking or trying new food, playing board games with friends, camping and dreaming of fixing up my motorcycle to ride cross-country.
