How do you serve at St. Aidan’s?

I have the privilege of leading our congregation in worship through song. While it is an opportunity to explore the vastness of the glory of God musically, it is also incredibly fun!

Family?

My wife Jessica and I have been married since 2013.

Where are you from?

My hometown is right here in Kansas City.

School / work experience?

I studied history at UMKC and earned a bachelor's degree there before completing my education certificate at UCM in 2014. I have been teaching middle schoolers here in town for four years now. I have a deep and bittersweet passion for the crazy life of teaching, but let's be honest; having summers off is the best gig in the world.  

Fun, hobbies, interests?

I love camping anywhere from the beaches of Canada to backcountry woods of the Ozarks to the boundary waters of Minnesota.
