- Dublin, OH
What brings you joy in your ministry?
I really just enjoy getting to know different people and hear their stories.
Who inspires you in ministry or seminary?
Really I find most ordinary people (and pastors) inspiring in some way or another.
What are your interests outside of ministry?
I am very interested in social justice and am also a graphic designer and iconographer.
Best meal you've ever eaten?
A red onion marmelade burger with chips and an O'hara's Irish Pale Ale at a pub next to the Abbey Court hostel in Dublin, Ireland.
I grew up in South Texas near San Antonio, was a Marketing major at Texas Lutheran University and attend(ed) seminary at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary
Did you always want to be clergy?
I have wanted to be almost everything at some point in time. I grew up wanting to be a farmer, doctor and astronaut. I went to college thinking that I would use my art and design skill to become a creative director at a marketing firm and then decided that I'd really rather help people and marvel at creation like I always wanted to as a kid.
