I love working with youth!!! My background has a long history of coaching high school football and baseball along with being a camp director for both the YMCA and the Boys and Girls Club.
My degree in “Hard Knocks” is from the United States Marine Corps where I served as an enlisted Infantry Marine. I then got my Masters in the same degree while working at a state penitentiary as a Corrections Officer. God then changed my plans by sending me to Concordia Texas in Austin to pursue my actual Bachelor's degree in Religious Education and Theology. I have served in churches in Texas and now Concordia, all working with youth and missions.
I am married to a very athletic and energetic woman. Jinnipher and I have 4 amazing children, Hope, Bailey, Declan and Raegan. In our free time, which is rare, we like to find adventures in the mountains or near an ocean.
