He graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2011, and received his B.A. in Political Science and Chinese Language. Prior to coming on staff at FBC in January 2016, he worked for State Employees’ Credit Union, but was excited for the opportunity to use his financial background and love for international ministry to serve the church.
