My Story

I grew up in South Jersey, just outside Philadelphia, but have lived in South Florida for over 25 years. I came from a large family and remember praying to receive Jesus with my dad, sister and our family dog at 5 years old. The death of my best friend to cancer my senior year in high school and a great college experience got me more serious about my relationship with God.  After college, I moved to Florida and have been a teacher at Boca Raton High School for over 25 years, where I have coached the boys and girls volleyball teams and assistant coached the girls soccer team. I have also been the school's Fellowship of Christian Athletes adviser. In 2001, I married my wife Suzi. We have 3 children and live in Boca Raton. Our son John is the oldest and our daughters Mackenzie and Addison are racing to keep up. We enjoy time together on the lake water skiing or at the beach.  Each of us have grown tremendously in our time at the Avenue Church. I am active playing ice hockey, barefoot water-skiing, racing go karts, and taking photos of auto racing.
