I grew up in Washington state, in a loving Christian family. Ever since I was seven years old, I dreamt of flying. As I grew older, I learned of the vast number of people who have yet to hear the saving gospel of Jesus Christ, and began to pray that God might open the door for my passion of flying to be used in His mission of redeeming the lost. By His grace, I was able to attend Moody Bible Institute to be trained as a mission aviation mechanic. It was there that I met Jonathan, and God joined both our lives and passions in serving cross-cultural disciple making through aviation.
