I was born in Chicago, but I claim to be a Texan native, go Cowboys. My father grew up in South America and my mother grew up in the Midwest. I have two older brothers: Nathan and Aaron. I moved out here to attend Colorado Christian University in 2014. I grew up in the Christian faith and got baptized in 7th grade. I accredit my love for Jesus to my mentors in Young Life. I have been a minster in Littleton since 2015 through Young Life. The past five years of ministry God has guided and continued to give me a passion for the youth in Littleton. My favorite sport is tennis. I am a huge fan of coffee shops, reading, cooking, spike ball, Catan, thrifting, and taco bell.
