I was raised in Grove City (where my parents still reside) along with my sister. For recreation, I enjoy golfing, skiing (on snow or water), and of course, OSU football. I graduated from The Ohio State University with a degree in Turfgrass Science. The following fall, I attended the Pontifical College Josephinum and was ordained a priest in 2011. Following ordination, I served as a Parochial Vicar at St. Matthew the Apostle in Gahanna for five years and for three years concurrently at St. Mary, Marion and Sacred Hearts, Cardington. Since 2019, I have been the Administrator of Holy Cross Church, Columbus and a chaplain at Grant Hospital. I am very thankful to Bishop Brennan for assigning me to St. John Neumann; and will do my best to be a good shepherd in the service of THE Good Shepherd.
