I was born in a small town in Minnesota.  I had a good childhood as I learned to snowmobile and enjoy all the winter sports that comes with living in a northern region. I went to high school and graduated with the desire to serve in the United States Army. I spent four years dedicated to working on "wheeled and tracked vehicles." I was honorably discharged and with the experience from the army I began working for many different contractors keeping construction equipment up and running. 

I grew up knowing about God, but not having a personal relationship with Him. I spent many years living life on my terms, until the day that the Holy Spirit drew me to salvation. Then, from that time forward the Lord has given me the gift of "Media Production and Presentation."  Serving as a  "Media Specialist" for Rapha, I am told that God is utilizing my talents to enhance Rapha's vision to reach the world.
