I was born... in Marshfield, Wisconsin.
My favorite passage in scripture is... Philippians 2:1-11 where Paul encourages believers to embody the humility and love of Christ.
My bookshelf includes... theology resources and fiction stories like Lord of the Rings.
My ideal vacation… camping on a beach with my friends and my dog.
I am happiest when… I’m with family and friends.
My favorite pastime is… recording music.
Likes… coffee, music, movies, golf, technology, the outdoors, health and wellness, and hammocks.
If I had a different job... I would be a recording engineer out of my home studio.
Nobody knows... that I’m a coffee snob.
Best advice I would give a 20-year-old... take chances while you are young and seek guidance from your loved ones around you.
