I was born into a military family, traveling all up and down the Eastern Seaboard and overseas as a child. When my family moved to the D.C. area, my parents joined the Episcopal church. My earliest church memories are there at Trinity Church in Manassas, Virginia. Throughout my childhood, I served as an acolyte both there and in Florida. When my wife and I relocated to St. Louis in 2002, we searched for a church family and started attending St. Martin’s because of its vibrant youth culture and the number of children we saw at church. We have been attending ever since.
Our family consists of my wife, Heather, and our two children, Paige and Chloe. We were long-time attendees to the 5:05 service. However, after our children started serving in the youth ministry, we moved to the Sunday morning service again. I am a psychologist, and my wife Heather is a university administrator.
I would like to serve the Church specifically, St. Martin’s has been very good to us, as both of my children have grown up in the Church. I hope this can be a time that I can repay some of the kindness and blessings the Church has brought into our life. This is also an exciting time for our Church as we are growing and focusing on the future. I hope I can be a part of that growth and development.
