Before receiving his degree, he served as an intern at Compass Rose Academy and enjoyed community events, pickup basketball and spreading the Word of God to young people. Raised in eastern Ohio, he comes from a Christ-centered home that taught him to love unconditionally and share his faith that everyone has eternal worth, value and beauty in the eyes of the Creator.
