I’m blessed with two terrific parents, Jim and Deeann; As well as four younger siblings: Sheldon, Morgan, Paxton, Aislyn (in order of age). Also, we have a dog named Charlie who would be offended if I left him off this list.
What might people find surprising about you?
I lived in Turkey for five years (2007-2012).
I graduated from Abilene Christian University in 2019 where I majored in Biblical Text.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I enjoy, among other things, bouldering, playing basketball, and reading. However, I think most things in life are better with people so spending time with friends and family in any context takes the cake.
What’s the best advice you ever received?
At a critical point in my faith journey my granddad told me, “Everyone worships something, whether they realize it or not, you have to decide what is deserving of your worship.” I decided God was the only one worthy of that worship and I have a heart to help youth make that same decision as well.
