I am blessed with the opportunity to serve in FOCUS’ headquarters in Denver as a data analyst. Through this position, I am able to help FOCUS and its over 700 missionaries across the country be better stewards of the Gospel through data-driven, although always Holy Spirit-led, approaches to bring the Gospel to college students.
Growing up, I was nominally religious, but not more than that. I served my own interests and rarely went to Mass. However, when I went to college, I encountered a student who changed my life. My pledge father in my fraternity, Adam, brought me into a relationship with Jesus Christ. The Secret: He spent time with me, invested his heart in me, and let the Holy Spirit work. He ultimately brought me to a FOCUS Conference, SEEK, where I and encountered the Lord in the Eucharist and was inspired to go to Confession for the first time since Middle School. Adam, who was being mentored by FOCUS missionaries, then taught me how to help others encounter Jesus. I learned how to share my testimony, talk to non-Christians about faith, and ultimately learned how to lead a Bible Study with my peers. As a result of Adam’s efforts, FOCUS Missionaries, and The Lord, I have found peace, repentance, and joy in the Gospel. After college, I and my wife (we married just after graduation) chose to become a FOCUS missionaries so we could help others would find the joy of a transformed life in Christ. However, as our family grew, we knew that it was time for a new role so I am currently serving in FOCUS’ headquarters in Denver as a data analyst. This role has allowed for me to continue to further the mission of FOCUS and serve my family. We are currently blessed with 3 children: Isabel (4), Joseph (3), and Augustine (1).
To serve the mission of FOCUS, I rely upon monthly mission partners (monthly donors) who support my work. I’ve been blessed with amazing people who have journeyed with me during my time on campus and in Denver. 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.
