I spent most of my childhood in Cheney, a small Kansas town just west of Wichita. I began attending River in 1995 where I experienced authentic Christian relationships. During my early years at River, I was also introduced to Tiffany, whom I married in 1996. Tiffany and I have three children together, Caleb, Jesse and Emily.

I have a music education degree from Wichita State University and I am currently enrolled at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Beginning in 2002 Tiffany and I lived and served in Vancouver, BC helping with a church plant called The Bridge.  While in Vancouver I worked at a web hosting company and taught web marketing courses to local business owners.  In 2009 we moved backed to the states and I began working at Youth Horizons first as the Mentoring Director and then as the Executive Director. I came on staff at River full time in 2015.

Hobbies & Interests:

I enjoying doing what my kids are doing, except for video games.  They like video games, I am not a big fan. As a family we enjoy going to the Y, going for bike rides and hanging out in the back yard. I do enjoy sand volleyball but don’t get to play too much in Kansas.
