Married to my wife Bri for 5 years and have two beautiful daughters, Willow and Woven.
Grew up in a Spanish-speaking, Pentecostal church-attending home and accepted Jesus as my savior at the age of 7. My family bounced from church to church, isolated and never valued community. I found a passion for drums and went to college at 17 to pursue that dream. I got to accomplish many things as a musician and being a successful drummer became my identity. In my early 20s I continued to bounce from church to church & while I loved the Lord, I didn’t know how to walk with him. I thought being a Christian was just about having a lot of knowledge and striving to impress God. I had no understanding or experience with the importance of living life in community with God AND with people. My girlfriend (now my wife) invited me to experience community & Jesus in a relational way at her church’s college group and my life began to change. I learned what being a disciple meant, went on a journey of my identity being found in Christ alone and finally got to experience the blessing of doing life with people as God designed us to do. I am very humbled to use my creativity to serve the Church and I am passionate about lonely people getting to encounter the fullness of joy Jesus offers as we walk through life in authentic relationship with others.
