I was born in Brazil, lived in Europe as a small child with my family, and grew up in Basking Ridge, NJ from age 6 onward. After High School, I attended Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC and became very involved in Reformed University Fellowship. After college, I spent two years interning with RUF at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville before attending Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri. I graduated from Covenant in May ’11 with a Master of Divinity (MDiv) and began my ministry with RUF at UConn. I was ordained in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) in October 2011. In March 2012, I married my beautiful wife Maggie, who now plays a crucial role in our ministry at UConn. In August 2014, she gave birth to our daughter Margot. We are blessed to know Jesus, and are committed to living out the gospel in daily life.
