I was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, where I learned to fully embrace the laid-back lifestyle, and long days soaking in the sunshine on the beach. While I was raised in a loving, Christian home, I spent most of my formative years rebelling against all things “church”. It wasn’t until my college-aged years that I became a Christian.
After we moved to Southern California, my mother began to attend Harvest, and as a teenager, I have memories of my mom dragging me both to church services and a few Harvest Crusades.
In 2010, the Lord began to draw near to me, and show me that the life I had been living was empty and meaningless, and I gave my life to Christ and have never looked back. Thinking back to the days when my family used to “drag” me to church, I knew that as a new Christian, I wanted to be a part of Harvest.
Over the years, I have volunteered in various ministries at Harvest, from Young Adults, Men’s Ministry, and even the Crusades. In 2012, I accepted a position to come on staff at Harvest. The next year, I met my beautiful wife Laura who was also working at the church.
I hold a Dual Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and Organizational Leadership from California Baptist University where I graduated Summa Cum Laude. My passion is to use my gifts of administration to aid in the mission of the Church and provide exceptional leadership to all those that serve on my teams.
I currently serve as the Executive Director of Strategy & Advancement. In my role, I help to grow Harvest Church and provide strategic alignment of budgets, people, and priorities to achieve measurable quantitative and qualitative growth for the ministry.
Laura and I live in Irvine, California, and have a heart for the Riverside, OC, and Maui communities of our campuses. When I’m not serving the church, you’ll usually find me on two wheels, enjoying motorcycle rides. Laura and I love to explore new and exciting restaurants, new movies, and live shows.
