Greetings! I am SO very excited to meet and start working, worshiping, and serving with you all at Christus Victor! I have a long history with the ELCA and the Twin Cities, so I know I will feel right at home. I grew up in Brooklyn Park, and graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College and Luther Seminary. I have worked at a few outdoor camps including Wapo, Green Lake, and Bo Ai International in Henan, China, and recently came from Como Park Lutheran as their Children, Youth, and Family Director. As I write this, I am one week away from celebrating my one-year anniversary with my wife Lydia, who also works in the Lutheran Church world as a Deacon.
In my spare time, and sometimes in professional life, I am a bit of a nerd. I have played in both classical and jazz music groups since high school. I also love games of all sorts from board and card games, to video games and nine-square, and have recently gotten into The Great British Baking Show with Lydia.
Thank you for already making me feel welcomed as part of the Christus Victor family. I look forward to all that is to come!
