I am originally a born and raised Jersey boy from the east coast but have been here in Colorado Springs serving with Springs Church since 2009. I grew up pursuing an artistic career in photography and graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York City in 2005. God got a hold of my heart during my college years and after photography school moved me on to Mt. Zion Bible School in Grantville, Pennsylvania. Through my affiliation with Mt. Zion, I had the honor and blessing to serve through two internships at Cork Church in Cork, Ireland and World Challenge Ministries here in Colorado Springs. I came on as the Youth Pastor at Springs Church in 2009 and have served the youth ministry for six years. I now serve here at Springs Church as an associate and teaching Pastor. My amazing wife Beth and I have two awesome boys, Landon and Max.
