I was born and raised in central Indiana as a Hoosier, but in a good way. I earned my undergraduate degree from Concordia University Chicago in Secondary Education. I taught high school math, Algebra and Geometry, for 5 years in LaGrange, Illinois. During that time I married my wonderful and amazing wife Sarah. We now have two fun, caring, and awesome children; Kaelyn and Owen. I graduated from Concordia Seminary in St. Louis with my MDIV in 2014. I thoroughly enjoy teaching people about the Lord and the love that he has for them, and desire that all know that Christ died and rose again for them. I enjoy playing sports such as softball, basketball, and volleyball along with reading, watching movies, and spending time with my family.
