I grew up serving in the worship ministry at New Life when I was a teenager. I have a Bachelor’s degree from Berklee College of Music, and spent four years living in Nashville playing guitar and bass, and touring the U.S. During this time, the Lord began stirring in my heart a desire to pursue vocational ministry.
Nashville was the desert where the Lord brought me to the end of myself in such a way as to work in my heart and help me understand the beauty and transforming power of his grace. I started to learn what it meant to have my identity be rooted in Christ instead of what people thought of me, and that my brokenness didn’t disqualify me from Jesus’s love. This led me back north in the fall of 2019, where I’ve since been going to graduate school at Missio Seminary pursuing a Masters in Divinity with a focus in pastoral counseling.
During my time in the South, I was part of Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) and mentored by Kevin Twit, pastor and founder of Indelible Grace Music. Here I developed a love of old hymns and arranging music, as well as an understanding of worship as a formative practice that helps us see Christ as more beautiful and more believable.
In my free time I enjoy making music with friends, playing basketball, and talking in strange accents.
