Tell us about your primary responsibilities at Third:

As Technical Director, I oversee all elements of Technical Production here at Third. Typically, that’s preparing for Sunday mornings and worship events but I also support events for all of our ministries, ministry partners, weddings and other outside events whenever they have a tech need. I also spend time teaching the rest of the staff how to use their Apple devices better ;) 

What are your favorite books?

I’m not a huge book guy, but a few favorites are Pursuing Christ, Creating Art by Gary Molander; Steal like an Artist and Show Your Work by Austin Kleon; Love Does by Bob Goff and certainly some others I read in college but have forgotten about by now.

What is your favorite thing about Richmond?

My favorite thing about Richmond is our culture. We’re not a “big city” but we have our own culture and our own identity unlike any city in our nation. I love all the outdoor activities we have in the midst of this urban setting.

Tell us about your family and what you like to do for fun:

In 2016 I married my lovely wife Hannah and shortly after we adopted our Shepard Mix, Koda. We love outdoor adventures like camping, hiking, biking, kayaking – anything outdoors. I also love playing and creating music. 

Why are you excited to be a part of Third?

As I have heard it said and said it many times myself “It’s a great time to be a Third!” We’re in a season of many changes, which is challenging, but through the challenges I’m always so encouraged to see how committed our community is to one other and how we’re excited to see where God is moving us next!
