As Lead Pastor, my job is to lead the staff and church in pursuing Jesus > everything. I was born and raised in San Jose, California. I have a twin brother, older brother and younger sister, and started dating my bride with a joke invitation to my senior prom because she was one of my best friend's older sister. I graduated from San Jose State with an Art degree, and while getting my master's in teaching God directed me into ministry. My wife and I were married in 2005 and have four amazing kids.
I grew up and playing all kinds of sports, but focused on soccer and was able to play for my college. I also loved roller hockey and the San Jose Sharks, and when I turned 18 I started playing ice hockey (I still play regularly at Chilled Ponds). I play guitar, am a handyman around the house and for others, and still do artwork both personally and for hire. My favorite movie is "Inception" and if money weren't an object I'd love to travel throughout Europe, especially Italy and France.... and then spend a month (or six) relaxing on the beaches of somewhere tropical.
I've written a book title "Faith FULL: A Practical Guide to FULLY Living Out Your Faith" and you can purchase it: https://store.bookbaby.com/book/faith-full
