My Greatest Experience with God - His calming presence in the middle of a panic attack I had in 2007
Born and raised in good ol' Northeast Ohio by parents that are a gift from God. I was blessed to have Christian teachers and family that shared the Gospel with me at a young age. In high school, the Spirit of God pursued me and I fell for His irresistible presence and gave my life to Lord. Through the example of family, incredible coaches and teachers, the Lord helped me understand the realities of living like a man after Christ's heart - accepting His identity and mission for me and rejecting false identities and narcissistic pursuits.
After pharmacy school and postgrad work the Lord called me back to South Florida in 2013. In 2014, I was introduced to the Avenue Church through a friend and felt like I had found home. Membership and serving God's people through this church has blessed my life in so many ways. In 2017, I was asked to help shepherd God's church community as an elder for the Avenue.
As a member of the Avenue, the large amount of coffee lovers became quickly apparent and it wasn't out of the ordinary to spend time with others at a local coffee shop. On a Sunday morning before church at one of these shops, I first met my beautiful wife, Lea. We were married by pastor Casey Cleveland on February 3rd, 2018. The Lord growing our relationship in community of the Avenue Church has been an incredible joy and was integral to our ability to wed. When I said this church as blessed my life in so many ways I wasn't kidding!
These days, my wife and I are enjoying the married life and finding new ways to save money and be a foodie by cooking at home. As a result, we are able to afford a gym membership where I can work the weight off. We regularly travel to see our dear family and friends in different areas of the country; and when at home, can be often found enjoying the many cool things in South Florida with church family, friends and Lea's family.
