My Biography

I was born in Houston, Texas on June 30, 1970. I grew up in a Christian home, but I recognized that I needed to personnaly accept Jesus Christ and could not rely on my parents' relationship. So, at the age of five I accepted God's free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ. I went to North Houston Baptist Schools from pre-K through my senior year of high school. I received a Bachelor's of Science degree in mathematics from Bob Jones University in Greenville, SC. While there, I worked with the four-year-old Cubbies in Awana at Hampton Park Baptist Church. After graduation I went to Texas A&M University to earn a Master's of Science degree in mathematics. I currently work for the College of Education and Human Development at Texas A&M University as a database administrator and web application developer.

I am currently serving as the youth director at Texas Avenue Baptist Church.
