I serve the Glen Ellyn, IL community as the Family Pastor at Parkview Community Church and also as a therapist at Grow Collective. Before joining Parkview in 2014, I served as the Children’s Director at First Evangelical Free Church in Rockford, IL.

At Parkview, I am privileged to have launched Parkview Kids Camp in summer 2016! As the Family Pastor, my role is to usher in the hope and healing Jesus offers to the family unit so that kids, students, and adults can live into their unique, God-given calling.

In addition to being part of Parkview's teaching team, I've served as a breakout speaker for conferences, chapels, and retreats.

My life mission is to help pull people out of their mess and chaos and into their next steps. As a counselor, I help teens, adults, and couples explore their life story with curiosity and find ways to live their best life when they are stuck, hurt, or lost.

I am a husband, father, pastor, counselor, mentor, and friend.

I love to cook, read, play basketball, and am an avid Bulls and Packers fan!
