Speaker
"I was born in San Francisco. I grew up in San Mateo. I was a typical Bay Area troubled teen until I met Jesus. I struggled with all the things the average kid struggles with on the peninsula.

Everything changed when I met Jesus though. Friendship, family, purpose, values, self-value all were changed when I gave my life to Jesus. Since then I’ve wanted to know Him more and more, and be like Him as much as possible. I have a passion for understanding and talking about the Bible, as well as joining Jesus in the work of restoring creation to what He created it to be.

I scuba dive poorly, surfed very poorly, and ride motorcycles averagely. My wife Tonya is way more intelligent than me, and she reflects the joy and love of Jesus in a way that to this day changes me. And my 2 kids, Nico and Mia, are so much closer to Jesus than I was at their age that it both fills me with joy --and humbles me.

I was a youth pastor for 20+ years, in the Bay Area and San Diego, and I miss it all the time. But, being the pastor of Cornerstone Walnut Creek is the hardest and best leadership position I’ve ever been in. Mainly, because I get to do the few things I’m good at and love to do every day; lead in God’s church, teach about Jesus, and build teams powered by the Holy Spirit."
