I feel God called me to the priesthood, in part, to support families and the vocation of marriage. I am the beneficiary of a loving family, with wonderful parents and a brother and a sister. We grew up in Dickson County, and I attended Saint Patrick's Elementary School in McEwen, TN. I attended Creek Wood public high school and went on to study philosophy at the Pontifical College Josephinum in Columbus, OH. Afterwards, I studied theology at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross in Rome, Italy, while living at the Pontifical North American College. I finished my studies with a License in Moral Theology from the University of Saint Thomas Aquinas. Since being ordained in 2014, I have primarily been assigned as chaplain for University Catholic, which serves all the university students in Nashville. As we begin 2019, I have been given the dual assignment of University Catholic and Saint Ann Parish.
When I get the chance, I enjoy backpacking and rock-climbing. I am an amateur astronomer, and I am currently learning to play the guitar. I very much look forward to getting to know each one of you. If at all possible, I would love to be invited to bless your home and to meet your family. What better way to get to know the people for whom I am praying and preaching! Please pray for me as your priest. I simply cannot fulfill my vocation and its responsibilities alone. Your prayers are the most important thing I need. Nothing else comes close. Every one of you is in my prayers and sacrifices!
