Attraction to Garrett-Evangelical:
Garrett-Evangelical has the open and loving spirit that I wanted in a seminary. The coursework challenges students to think outside of the box. The field study opportunities for service in the local and world-wide community caught my attention. The people were welcoming upon my visit. I am also passionate about service and social justice, and the opportunities for those things in the greater Chicago area cannot be beaten.

Unique Personal Information:
I was a theater major in high school and college. At one point I was a street mime and a professional juggler.

Calling:
I am passionate about bringing active social ministries into the church as an institution.  I believe fervently in John Wesley’s “Do all the good you can, By all the means you can, In all the times you can, To all the people you can, As long as you ever can.” I want to learn about the world and the church and to see how better we, as Christians, can actively and lovingly serve the world as Christ would have us do.

My favorite thing at Garrett-Evangelical so far:
The people! There are so many amazing people that care about God’s world, are passionate about Christ’s love, and strive to create justice and peace. Even in this short time, I have made friendships for a lifetime.
