I began attending Grace Bible in 2002 and became a member in 2003. I grew up in Edison where my parents were music educators. I earned a degree in music education from Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University. I was a middle school music teacher before I came on staff at Grace in 2021 as the music and missions pastor. In addition my wife Tammy and I lead our church's College/Career Ministry. In 2008, I married my wife Tammy, who I met at Grace and we have four children together.
