I am originally from the San Francisco Peninsula. After studying International Business Management at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, I served as a missionary in places like Morocco, China, Italy, England and France. Along the way, I completed an MDiv from Regent College in Vancouver, Canada. It was at Regent where I met my English wife, Christina. We have two daughters.
I love... life! I love celebrating God's goodness and creativity in nature and in food. I love spending time with people, listening to them and laughing with them. Helping people become who God created them to be is one of my very favorite things.
I also love exploring new places, discovering new cultures, and learning new languages. Right here in Sacramento, I've enjoyed walking around the neighborhood, getting down to the river, and eating at some of the amazing restaurants around town. I am a life-long fan of the 49ers and SF Giants.
