I was born in San Diego in 1968 and Escondido has been my permanent residence since 1970. I went to Juniper Elementary, Del Dios Middle and San Pasqual High School. After five years at Northern Arizona University I earned my Bachelor’s degree in 1991 in Advertising with an emphasis in Music Performance.
After graduating from college I was involved in the Music Ministry at Emmanuel Faith Community Church and Mission Hills Church. During this time I owned a small business and later worked at Jazzercise, Inc. for six years as an audio engineer and video producer. As the construction progressed at Mission Hills, I felt that God was preparing me to serve in a ministry capacity and I feel blessed to now be a part of the Mission Hills team.
My wife, Sara, and I have been married for 15 years and have two boys, Andrew and Nathaniel. I enjoy spending time with my family, playing with the boys and watching them dance while I play loud electric guitar.
