Where I serve

I serve part-time at the University of Alabama as a full-year intern while I complete my undergraduate studies! I am blessed to be able to walk with my classmates and fellow UA students for my final year at the Capstone as we pursue both academic excellence and a deep encounter with our LORD.

My Story

I have been blessed to have had Jesus in my life since day one. I am the only child of two very devoted parents, who instilled in me that faith comes first, and everything else follows. From when I was three years old until I was a senior in high school, I received a Catholic education. Through this education, I fell in love with the intellectual tradition of Catholicism. As the years progressed my academic curiosity evolved into a true relationship with our LORD, Jesus Christ. It was during middle and high school that I saw many people my age start to consciously neglect their faith, but my head and my heart would not let me. I knew my faith was true and I was meant to be with Christ then, now, and forever.

Years later when I came to the University of Alabama I got involved with a FOCUS Bible Study, and God blessed me with the best group of men to help me grow as a man and as a Catholic. In my sophomore year, I began leading my own Bible study and walking with a few young men in discipleship. I fell in love with these men and being able to share the blessings that I have been given with them. Now I am here beginning my first year with FOCUS, looking to find more opportunities to share the blessings Christ has so graciously given to me, with others.
