I am from Greentown, Indiana. I went to Ozark
Christian College in Joplin, Missouri and graduated with a bachelor's degree in
Biblical Justice. I live in Lower Price Hill with my wife, Tessa, and our son.
I am a huge fan of the Bengals, the Reds and the University of Notre Dame. I am
deeply passionate about my hobbies of local bourbon, coffee and golf. I began work with BLOC in May of 2017 in the Sports Performance Center as the
assistant coach & tutoring coordinator. I co-lead workouts with our Director and tutor the athletes who enter our doors. I also spearhead our
involvement with kids in the juvenile justice system by coordinating partnerships with the detention center, probation officers, judges, and public
defenders. I am a community advocate for our kids going through court
hearings in the justice system as well.
I am extremely passionate about fighting for justice for
kids caught up in the juvenile justice system. I do what I do because I want to
defend them and fight for them to be treated fairly throughout the process in a
system that often takes advantage of them. On a larger scale I want to build
relationships with kids in an area that is under-resourced and often forgotten, and fight for their dignity, paving the way for them to thrive despite the many
obstacles in their paths.
My vision for my work is that the Performance
Center can serve dozens, if not hundreds, of kids from Price Hill as we train
their bodies and minds - and heal and grow their souls. I also see God leading us into
deeper partnerships in the justice system and hope to be able to advocate for
numerous kids to be given true justice through their involvement in the system.
I want to see our partnership with the public defenders bloom into an organized
effort for the community and the church to defend and uphold the dignity of
"“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” - Luke 4:18-19
