Born and raised in the great prairie province of Saskatchewan. The oldest son of grocery store owners learning about serving the community growing up in the grocery store. Enjoyed the gift of growing up in a small rural town with lots of extended family nearby.
Loves being a P.U.N.K. (Proud Uncle No Kids) and a Godfather. Loves Christmas, the crèche and learning from the lives of the saints. Loves to be creative in the kitchen.
Can be found writing early in the morning. Is often tinkering in the chapel. Enjoys a good run, a good song, and setting a good table for celebrations.
Prior to joining the Franciscans worked in various ministry settings as a Youth Minister and Pastoral Assistant. Graduated with a Bachelor of Theology Degree in 2018. Solemnly Professed Friar in 2019.
