Where are you from?  Temecula, CA

Major in college? Exercise Studies with a Worship Arts minor.

What activities were you involved in at JBU? I was a chapel band worship leader, and sang in choir all four years. I also was a part of the right lead ministry out at New Life Ranch where we used horsemanship as a medium for mentoring at risk kids in the communities nearby.

Why are you working at JBU? 
I am a firm believer in JBU’s mission to give students a place where they can learn and grow holistically… “Head, Heart, Hand!” As an admissions counselor I get to meet all sorts of new people and tell them about JBU! It’s a great combination of things I love.

What are your favorite things to do in NWA? I love going kayaking or hiking in the Ozarks Mountains. NWA is a beautiful spot!!

What's one word or phrase that describes you? That guy from California who plays cello!

What are some movies you enjoy? I like anything with adventure and a really good storyline that makes me think.

Describe your family: My wife and I enjoy playing music together, being outside and seeing the latest movies! I am also the third of four kids and have 40 first cousins!

What quick advice would you give an incoming JBU student? Buckle your seat belt, you're in for a wild ride in which you’ll grow spiritually, personally, relationally and academically! JBU is a fantastic place to learn and grow.
