I gravitate towards fast-functioning and high-performing teams. After 2009, I fast-tracked myself through culinary school and climbed the kitchen ranks to eventually be a contributor to a Michelin-awarded team at the Peninsula Hotel in downtown Chicago. Concurrently, I progressed from high school coach to volleyball club owner and continually coached high-performing, result driven teams, teaching them the growth mindset. I am driven to contiually learn and seek out mentors and to be mentors to those I able to.
On Father's Day 2011, I gave my life to Christ, as did my wife Charina. In the Fall of 2016, our 11-year old son Nathaniel, gave his life to Jesus during a student ministry event. We have been attending Harvest Bible Chapel in Niles since January 2010. My wife and I have been in charge of running the Hospitality/Café ministry at the Niles, IL campus for the past 4 years. I am also a member of Christian Business Fellowship. When I'm not at church, I work at Moody Bible Institute in downtown Chicago as the Head Coach of the Women's Volleyball team.
