Born in Indianapolis, In. in 1981 I was raised in the Church. Baptized at the age of 10, I have been growing in my relationship with Christ Jesus our Savior. Continuing to be reshaped and reforged by his hands daily. I entered the US Army post high school and served in the OLD GUARD & at the Pentagon September 11, 2001. I had deployments to both Iraq & Afghanistan. Now retired military & graduate of MNSU with a major in Communications Studies & minor in Aeronautics, & Aviation Business degree from Academy Collage. Moved to Cambridge, Mn in May of 2021 & began attending First Baptist in June. Married my wonderful wife Rachel in June of 2016, together we are raising three young sons (4/2/10mn). When not working I enjoy researching aviation technologies, designing aircraft ideas, and flying small aircraft. I enjoy learning, new challenges, & developing creative & innovative Ideas to complex issues.
