I was born in Reading, PA but grew up in Lancaster where I spent much of my youth in the fields, rivers and streams. I graduated Hempfield High School and later in 2001 earned my Degree in Electronic Engineering at Devry University in New Brunswick, NJ. After graduating, I decided to move to the Jersey Shore to continue surfing and to pursue my career. The Lord saved me shortly before I started attending Grace around 2005, where I later met and married my lovely wife Lindsay. I am an avid surfer and fisherman, but most of all I enjoy spending time with my wife and two kids. I serve as an elder and lead a growth group in my home.
