My advice to men considering the priesthood: Get to know priests outside of Mass, because as you get to know them as humans, you realize how courageous, cool, and masculine they are and how it's an incredibly attractive, powerful, transformative and important vocation.

Why I want to be a priest: I feel a great attraction to celebrating the Mass and consecrating the Eucharist, as well as being the vessel for people to encounter God's great mercy in the sacraments of Reconciliation and the Anointing of the Sick.

Those who influenced me: Fr. Andrew Strobl, Fr. Richard Storey, Fr. Patrick Nwokoye, Fr. Steve Beseau, Trevor Downey.

Hobbies & Interests: Kayaking, reading, watching sports, playing sports, listening to music
