I am a seminarian for the Diocese of Belleville. I come to the seminary with a degree in architecture from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale. I was in college when I first discovered the Real Presence of Our Lord in the Eucharist and that brought about in me a profound re-version to my childhood faith and a new and lasting deep love of the Blessed Sacrament. As time went on, I began to study the faith and I was constantly amazed at the beauty of the truth I was discovering. Finally, when I decided the faith had to be the center of my life rather than anything else, my career for instance, I heard the call to seminary formation. Now I am here answering that call and listening to Jesus as I discern the vocation of the priesthood. 

I enjoy reading, writing, and architectural drafting. I have a special devotion to our Lady of Grace.
