Tell us about your family?
My Wife is Celsey. We will celebrate our 10 year anniversary this October. We have 2 sons. Harvey, our oldest, will be 2 next month and Whitaker is 2 months old…pray for us.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I love going to Hawkeye sporting events. Football and wrestling to be specific. I also enjoy hanging with family, frisbee golf, and wood working in the garage while listening to AM sports radio.
How would your friends and family describe you?
I’ve been told that I am fairly loud…especially when telling a story. Most people would describe me as humorous, talkative, enthusiastic, and loyal.
Iowa or Iowa State?
Iowa is, and will always be, a Hawkeye State.
What excites you most about being on staff at Veritas Church?
I have always loved being a part of a church like Veritas that encourages and values the next generation. Now, since getting hired, I am excited to play a bigger role in impacting parents, kids, and volunteers to know Christ so they can make Him known in their everyday lives.
What is the most useless talent you have or piece of information you know?
I can throw a marshmallow 30 feet up in the air and catch it in my mouth.
