I became involved with CVCYouth in April of 2018 shortly after my wife Kristin Brauer had joined. I was looking for an opportunity to serve God’s Kingdom and I could serve alongside Kristin. I don’t have a specific memory of Collide that surpasses any other, each day is a blessing to walk with my students, being able to watch them learn and grow. My favorite part of serving is watching things click for them when they understand, it reminds me that the work I’m doing is important and fruitful. Outside of Collide I am a civil engineer at the Ohio Department of Transportation and in my spare time I enjoy sports, board games, video games, and spending time with my wife, family, and friends.
