bio: Grew up moving a ton with a single mom. Finished High School in New Orleans, which was a different world. I had tons of drama in my home life, but in all of that I knew God had created me to work with students. I NEVER dreamed it would be working with them in the walls of a Church. When I was 22 I had hit a low point in life, I mean really low. It was at that point I surrendered everything over to Jesus, everything. I began in youth ministry six months later and now twenty years into it, here I am. I have an incredible wife and two sons that are becoming godly young men. I am blessed.
