I am a Midwestern kid (Indiana) who moved to California in 2003 with my wife, Tonya. I have been involved in College and Young Adult Ministry at varying capacity for nearly a decade, and I love what I do. You’re more likely to find me in a coffee shop than my office; I’d rather meet you “out there” than “in here”. I did my undergraduate work Anderson University and my graduate work at Hope International University.
Favorite music artists:
Counting Crows, Mute Math, City and Colour, Mewithoutyou, The Glorious Unseen, Journey
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Dead Poets Society, Good Will Hunting, Garden State, Finding Forrester, Away We Go
The Ragamuffin Gospel (Manning), The Cost of Discipleship (Bonhoeffer), Abba’s Child (Manning), The Artists Way (Cameron), How To Read A Book (Adler), The Return of the Prodigal Son (Nouwen)…this list is too hard for me.

If you could have coffee with three people, alive or dead:
It would probably be Chris Farley, Gilda Radner, and Mother Teresa. I’d just sit and watch the first two make MT (that’s what I call her) laugh. It would thrill me like crazy.
Two truths and a lie:
I was once a part of a traveling improv comedy/drama team, I have been swimming in each great lake, I was once 280lbs.
You pit two people in a fist fight:
Me and Mike Tyson!
