Favorite Thing About Work:

Was an Evangel Student:
I am not an Eu alumnus
Originally From: Malden (Boston suburb), MA
I'm an ordained minister and have served as both senior and associate pastor. I've preached and/or taught on several short-term missions trips, including visits to Mexico, the Republic of Congo, Kenya, South Africa, Bulgaria, England, the Dominican Republic, and Cuba.
I like to hunt and fish--and cook and eat what I catch. I am also interested in the interface between natural science and Christian faith. My wife and I are great fans of Thai food!
