Interests

My young son is the joy of my life, together with my wife. Before becoming parents, my wife and I loved traveling around the world and exploring new places and cultures. I enjoy a good cup of coffee, a book, and watching a sunrise to start each morning, unless I am up early with Daddy duties. I can also be found hiking, fishing, hunting and following the Atlanta Braves.

Church

Zion Mennonite Church

Family

I met my wife, Heidi, as we were students at Eastern Mennonite University. We particularly loved our semester abroad living in Lesotho and South Africa as part of a cross cultural program through the university.

Community involvement

Zion Mennonite Church youth sponsor

Favorite Bible verses

4 Rejoice[a] in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.[b] 5 Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. 6 Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8 Finally, beloved,[c] whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about[d] these things. -- Philippians 4:4-8

My dream for EMS

My dream is that EMS can be a model school where other students, teachers, and community members see us authentically living out our vision and mission.
