Born and raised in Texas, I came to understand the gospel at younglife camp the summer before heading to the university of Arkansas to attend college. Through Eph 2:8-9 I realized that I couldn’t get it wrong enough and I certainly couldn’t get it right enough to earn God’s love. It was in college that my faith really started to take shape through an on campus ministry. During my junior year I studied abroad and that’s where I fell in love with God’s people and cultures that are vastly different from my own. After college I moved to Kenya for high school ministry. Then to the Maldives for photography. I eventually ended up in Seattle where I spent the last two years and fell wildly in love with the great outdoors before moving back to the great state of Texas to be closer to my roots!
