A cradle Catholic, I received all my sacraments in Nederland, Texas. It was there that God planted a seed into my heart that would grow into the beautiful vocation that he is leading me into now. Through the sacraments, God touched my heart and left it inflamed for worship. After high school, I decided to pursue a degree in philosophy at Texas A&M. Now in my second year of priestly formation, I am excited to continue to grow in deep friendship with the Lord Jesus as a brother and a disciple.
