“Top Seven Decisions of Saintly Fathers and Husbands”

I am convinced and convicted that Jesus and His Catholic Church are the real deal – the Treasure hidden in the field worth giving everything for (Matthew 13:44). By God’s grace, my will is to go deeper into the Treasure and grow stronger in a life of authentic prayer and virtue…like the tree planted near streams of water (Psalm 1:3).

My desire is to simply and authentically love well, both God and others, especially my wife, and with her, our children entrusted to our care. I offer any gifts, skills, or abilities I may have back to Almighty God that He might use me in any way He sees fit to build His Kingdom (Isaiah 57:14; Matthew 6:33) and glorify His name (Psalm 115:1). My educational background is in media and theology: B.A. Media Studies, M.F.A. Screenwriting, M.A. Theology and Christian Ministry (Franciscan University 2006).

After a truly miraculous conversion and return to the Sacramental life of the Catholic Church in 2001 at the age of 24, I have served ever since, in Catholic parishes, schools, and organizations, as well as being active in pro-life work since 2002 and Catholic media since 2008.
