My Story

Originally from upstate NY, I have lived in Boca Raton since 1990. I had the advantage of growing up in a Christian household and have been walking with Jesus for most of my life (Actually, He has been walking with me). Before attending the Avenue Church, I had the privilege of serving as a Deacon at Spanish River Church. My wife Karen and I felt called to the mission of the Avenue Church 6 months after its inception. Soon thereafter, I was asked to serve as a Deacon and then greatly humbled when asked to serve as an Elder.

Karen and I have three daughters, Hannah, Gabrielle, Ashlee and her husband Peter, and a granddaughter, Savannah and our grandson, Jaxson.
