Looking for something a little different for your next children's, junior high, or family event? My presentations use puppetry, comedy, drama, and magic to present topics that are pertinent to today's children and youth. My goal is to bring laugher to the lips and Christ's love to the hearts.

I have been doing presentations and ministry for the past six years. I have been a junior high and high school teacher, a missionary in Taiwan, and a coach. Currently, I'm the Director of Christian Education at Christ Our Redeemer in Sandpoint, Idaho. I have a wife and two young children. I hold a BA in Secondary Education from Concordia University in Portland.
