How did you connect to St. Marcus?

Living in Milwaukee all my life, I have always heard of the impact that St. Marcus has had on the community. I had been serving in youth ministry both professionally and as a volunteer for 15 years but, when the needs of my family changed, God opened up the opportunity to utilize my passion for design and media to serve God's people in a new way here at St. Marcus!

What do you love about what you do?

I love hearing people's excitement about what God is doing at St. Marcus and in the community. I get to share in that joy through breaking down barriers that might get in the way by communicating opportunities to advance the kingdom of God and celebrate his victories.

If you had a Bible passage/quote for your life and ministry what would it be?

1 Corinthians 15:57-58 - "But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain."

Tell us about your family…

I am married to my best friend Erin who is the best mom ever to our three kids Grayson (6), Judah (4), and Laurel (2).

“When I have free time, you will find me…”

Spending time with my family and drinking good coffee.

What’s your favorite vacation spot?

Honestly, anywhere with my family. We also love exploring cities by visiting local coffee shops.

What’s one fun fact about you?

I do appearances as Batman for charities and hospitals and try to bring smiles to kids and families in need but don't give away my secret identity!

Anything Else You Would Like to Share?

God has blessed me abundantly and I am so excited to be serving him and his people at St. Marcus!
