I was born in Los Angeles, CA in 1978. On June 14, 1997, Donnique and I got married at a young age and are blessed to have 4 beautiful children (3 sons and 1 daughter) together. In August 1997, at the age of 18, I surrendered my life to the Lord, Jesus Christ. During my California years, I was an English teacher at the junior high school level and had the honor of serving as the Youth Pastor at a church in Compton, CA. My family and I moved to Arizona in 2007 where I, briefly, continued my teaching career at the high school level before transitioning to a university as a Teacher Education Specialist and an Academic Program Analyst for 9 years. During some of those years, I also spent time coaching youth football, teaching children at Sunday School and teaching at a home fellowship. In January 2017, I was blessed to become a member of the full-time staff at Calvary Chapel of Queen Creek where I have been fellowshipping since 2008. My desire is to glorify God and to see others grow spiritually through the Word of God and by the power of the Holy Spirit.
