Where I serve

This is my first year in FOCUS and God has sent me to Bowling Green State University! You can find me organizing a sand volleyball team, throwing frisbee golf, or playing card games in the Catholic student center. All of these are great avenues to form intentional friendships and share the Gospel!



My Story

While studying at Iowa State, I found that it was not enough to know about God, but I actually wanted to know God. As I encountered older students living faithfully, I was driven to imitate their example.

I graduated in December of 2022 and started working as a Software Engineer for Zirous in Des Moines. Although I loved my team and my work, I felt called to encounter souls in a significantly different capacity. This opportunity is made manifest through FOCUS, and I am excited to bring the joy of the Gospel to the next “generation” of college students!

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. I’ve been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I’d be honored to share this mission with you. Feel free to call me at 507-517-4072 or email me at [email protected].
