Where did you grow up?

Born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida. My family moved to Hot Springs, AR when I was 15.

What was your first job ever?

I worked at Chick-Fil-A.

What do you enjoy most about your job at Fellowship?

My coworkers are passionate and hilarious people, a million dollar combo in my opinion. I couldn’t ask for a better crew.

If you attended college, where did you go?

Tell us about your personal life! Family, hobbies, etc.

I have the best parents ever, one brother, two sisters, two nephews, and three nieces. They all rock so hard and I love them to the moon and back! We all love family hangs and sarcasm. I have an Australian Shepherd named Rickon and he’s the greatest dog on the planet. I also have amazing friends that I consider to be family, don’t know what I’d do without them! I love being outside, summertime, hiking, camping, running, drinking coffee, movies and watching Netflix. I also enjoy healthy arguments/debates of just about any kind!

What’s your favorite food?

I love Italian Food more than any other kind. However, to get specific to just one food it’s probably really good pizza. At the end of the day, I just don’t think well-made pizza can be beaten.

When/how did you begin your relationship with Jesus Christ?

I grew up in a devout Christian home but I did not grow up in the church at all, or at least not in the traditional sense. My earliest memories are of Jesus and Star Wars so I’ve always known who He was. I have a hard time pinning my conversion to a specific moment because in reflection it feels like a series of new and gradual understandings and epiphanies. But I think that it was at some point in high school when I really began understood the full weight of the Gospel and the work of Christ on the cross. The best part is that I continue to learn each day how deep and wide the Gospel is. That’s rad!!

What’s one thing about you that others would be surprised to know?

When I graduated high school and started college my career path was laser-focused on becoming an actor on Broadway in New York City. My self-proclaimed goal was to act as a missionary on Broadway: sharing Jesus and community with a diverse range of people while doing and working hard at what I loved.
