When you see my name I know what you’re thinking, and I don’t mean to disappoint you, but no I am not a hard drinking Russian mobster. I serve as the YOUTH & YOUNG ADULTS Pastor here at Rain City Church and I love that my job allows me to be a part of some of the most pivotal years of a young person’s life while giving me the excuse to act like a kid sometimes, too. 

I started serving with Young Life 8 years ago, while I attended Colorado Mountain College studying Business Management & Marketing.

I am originally from California, but feel like right at home in the PNW with my wife Kelsie, my two sons Zephaniah and Krew, and our two dogs. I am a coffee nerd, music geek, and Mexican food lover.
