I was raised in Canton, Ohio, but since high school I’ve lived all over Northeast Ohio. I grew up in the church, but God shook me out of my complacent faith when I was 17. Ever since then I’ve seen the value of youth ministry and have pursued helping students to grow in their faith. I am passionate about equipping students to take what they know about Christianity and put it into action. My wife, Brooke, and I have one daughter, Zion, who was born in 2021, and a Labradoodle named Chaco. I have been a lifelong fan of the Browns, love most anything where I can be outdoors, like to be challenged by repairing cars and electronics, and also enjoy playing video games and board games.
