About me

I am a philosophy student at Utah State University for the purpose of gaining the education needed to train Christians in apologetics and ministry. I am also a youth pastor at New Life Fellowship. I am passionate about giving believers the tools needed to be able to defend their faith.


I grew up in a Christian home and have the most wonderful parents anyone could ask for. But when three of my grandparents passed away within a year’s time, I questioned everything I knew about God and Christianity. I lived on the border of atheism and shallow Christianity until I had a breaking point where God rescued me and introduced me to a world of thoughtful Christianity which introduced me to a deep and rooted faith. Since then, my passion has been to help people in their doubts and struggles just as I had struggled.


My favorite hobbies are fishing, reading, and discussing books.
