I grew up in Katy, Texas. After graduating from Katy High School, I attended Abilene Christian University (ACU) where I studied Bible and Ministry with an emphasis in Youth and Family Ministry. While at ACU I was lucky enough to meet my wife, Ariel! After graduating from ACU Ariel and I got married in 2016, have served in youth ministry in a few different churches. We moved to Leander in 2019 when I started working on my Master of Arts in Youth Ministry from Austin Seminary, through a program called Center for Youth Ministry Training (CYMT). In June of 2022 welcomed our first child Lakelynn into the world. In my free time you will find me coaching watching and competing in CrossFit, playing board games, exploring coffee shops, and finding awesome escape rooms to add to the growing list Ariel and I have escaped.
