About Me: I was born into a family of pastors and church workers. Lutheran pastors go back several generations in my family. I graduated from Valparaiso University before becoming a student here at Concordia Seminary. I am married with three children. I have had the opportunity to live in England on two occasions. It has made me a bit of an Anglophile. I enjoy reading, hiking, fishing and craft brewing.
Favorite Place in Saint Louis: Forest Park—one of America’s great urban parks—and Schlafly’s—St. Louis’ best brewery since 1991!
Music I Like: I enjoy anything and everything… except country.
What I Love About Concordia Seminary: The faculty is excellent and dedicated to the task of preparing men for the holy ministry. They make Concordia a wonderful place to learn and grow!
