I am a full-time pastor of a multi-staff church, focusing on digital communications and discipleship. I practice martial arts and run a cross-fit kickboxing club in my church. I like to chill out with my wife and three teenage daughters during weeknights or read books on theology and new religions. Though you might catch me with a camera doing portraiture photography.
