I don't claim a home town because I moved frequently as a kid. When people ask where I am from I respond, "the whole world!" I now reside in Arizona and serve as the Life Support Coordinator at Life Teen. Before that I was youth minister for five years and before that I was a foreign missionary for two years. When not at work you can find me at Crossfit or Zumba, but most of all, I love spending time with people and the Lord.
