I am currently serving as the pastor for Bethany Presbyterian Church in Tacoma, WA. I am called to serve the community of Jesus Christ through sharing the Word and the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord's Supper.

I enjoy exploring the Hebrew Bible / Old Testament, focusing on diasporic texts, such as the books of Daniel and Esther, as they speak to third culture populations. With an additional degree in Practical Theology, I aim to correlate how these texts can inform preaching, spiritual, and worship practices in communities of faith. 

Below is a list of the congregations/ministries I have been previously part of and a list of my qualifications and continuing education.
