User Bio

I am a pastor, a teacher and a Detroiter.

I grew up in Northern Michigan (one of the most beautiful places on earth) and fell in love my freshman year of college. My wife and I moved to Southeast Michigan after our wedding in 2006.

I am a dedicated advocate for nonprofits & churches and I love working to improve and promote opportunities for people throughout the metro Detroit area.

In 2007 I was brought in to develop the technology resources and curriculum at Detroit Cristo Rey High School, the only coed Catholic high school in the city of Detroit. Our first day of classes was in August 2008 and I have loved being at the school since day one.

I am an Anglican pastor and I have the joy of leading St. Jude’s Anglican Mission in Midtown with one of my best friends Mike. We started meeting in 2011.

We moved into Corktown in Detroit back in 2009 and I haven't had as much fun before as I have in the past 3 years.

In addition to my pastoral and teaching roles, I am a board member for the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network in Detroit and I love to humiliate myself playing soccer with friends from the Detroit City Futbol League.

I care about people's lives and self-worth so I volunteer with IMAlive, the first online crisis hotline.
