When speaking, I love to challenge and motivate audiences with real-life stories, humorous anecdotes, and biblical principles that I seek to live out in my daily life. I've been blessed to speak at some of the top churches, conferences, businesses, seminaries, and Christian universities in the country. I've been privileged to speak to celebrities, professional athletes, creatives, pastors, rich and poor and to the Royal Family.
I am a Los Angeles Funeral Celebrant, Wedding Pastor, Director of Pastoral Care at Shepherd Church, Grief Educator, Life Plan Facilitator, Leadership Coach and lover of life! I am a Certified Celebrant through InSight Institute and an Ordained Minister through Saddleback Church. I have a BA in Business Economics, a Master of Divinity, an MBA in Leadership, and I recently completed my Doctor of Ministry degree from Biola University.
My top five personal values include: Livelong learning, Servant Leadership, Excellence, Pioneer Spirit, and Resiliency.
At the end of the day, I help people LAUNCH things. As a Wedding Pastor, I help couples launch healthy marriages. I also help pastors launch their own wedding businesses. As a Funeral Celebrant, I help families launch into a season of healing from loss. As a Speaker, I help people launch into becoming God's best version of who he created them to be. As a Leadership Coach, I help church planters (pastors) launch healthy churches. As a Grief Educator, I help people rediscover joy after a life-changing loss.
"MY LIFE PURPOSE IS TO BE A LOVING PASTOR, INSPIRING SPEAKER AND ENCOURAGING COACH THAt helps others reach their god-given potential."
