My biggest passions in life are music, film, theology, and culture.
With this, I have a deep passion for traveling and engaging with other cultures outside of my own.
I was fortunate enough in my childhood to be given the opportunity to travel and experience many areas in the U.S. (and even once or twice outside of the country). This has instilled in me a strong desire to see as much of this world as I can in one lifetime, and to engage deeply with global cultures.
I was born and raised in the Great Lakes region of the US; hailing from both Chicago and Detroit. In undergrad I studied theater, psychology and communications. In 2013 my wife and I moved out to sunny Pasadena, CA to attend grad school at Fuller Theological Seminary.
