el camino de santiago


The Way of the Cross follows a young pilgrim walking along the Camino de Santiago as he carried a large wooden cross 550 miles in Northern Spain. He learned about humility, pain, suffering, adventure, compassion and joy through encounters with pilgrims from over 40 different countries. The journey taught him to trust in the Lord, and revealed the lives the Lord can impact through the people that answer his call. Miracles surrounded the cross, but he was completely oblivious to what was happening around him. All the while, evil attacked, attempting to stray him from the true path.

I grew up in a small town in Wisconsin and decided to go to school in Kansas at Benedictine College. The fall after college, I was fortunate enough to graduate early and embark on a fantastic journey across Spain. Since finishing El Camino de Santiago, I have been working as an engineer in Wisconsin while planning my next adventure. Some of my daily activities include mountain biking, skiing, hiking, longboarding, and all other kinds of outdoor activities. 

I got married to my beautiful wife, Monica, in 2019. And our first baby is due at the end of 2020. Currently, we are planning another Camino de Santiago trip, but this time, it will be with a baby!
