My calling in life is to advance the Kingdom of God by using my skills in graphic design. I’ve served as a youth pastor at my home church, a full-time missionary graphic designer / magazine managing editor at a missions university in Hawaii, and currently as a graphic designer for the denominational office of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. I’m also an experienced team building coach, utilizing games to spark group conversations about improving communication, trust, conflict management, commitment, accountability, and getting results.
