WHY LGCS: I’m passionate about people knowing Jesus! I also love hearing what they are excited about, and helping them take steps to make their passions actionable. I also love watching students grasp new concepts for the first time, and realize who God made them to be.
EXPERIENCE/EDUCATION: I earned a degree in Computer Science from Cal Poly SLO. Since then I have done a number of jobs, most recently working with Waymo in a Software role, then working as a Product Manager at Adobe. I have also worked at Life360, Western Digital, and Hume Lake Christian Camps. I have been working with students from Kindergarten to college, either in ministry, coaching, or teaching for 10+ years.
HOBBIES: I love all things active, and have either played or coached basketball, volleyball, football, soccer, ultimate frisbee, spikeball, table tennis, snowboarding, and surfing. I really enjoy reading and learning new things, especially in the realms of theology and personal development. Cooking, playing board/card games and spending quality time with friends and family are also top notch activities.
FAVORITE BIBLE VERSE: James 1 is my favorite chapter, specifically verses 2-5. “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”
INTERESTING FACTS: I have a deep appreciation and passion for other cultures, with my own family being spread across 5 continents. After college I spent 8 months doing missions work in 8 different countries throughout Africa and Asia. Interesting/fun jobs I have done include professional taste testing, lifeguarding, and video game testing. I played table tennis and spikeball competitively for Cal Poly SLO, and have been on ESPN.
