I have been attending Grace since we moved to Erie in 2006. I have been involved at Grace leading a Guest Experience Team and as a mentor in the youth group. I am the husband of my wife, Darcey, who has also been active leading Moving In Moving On, a ministry to women new to Erie, and playing piano for Commons worship team. I am also the father of two young and active little girls who love to laugh and have fun. We moved to Erie from upstate NY when I started my job teaching Mechanical Engineering at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College. With a growing engineering program, I keep pretty busy prepping for classes, helping students with homework and projects, and grading. I'm also involved in a university-industry partnership working with other faculty and students on research projects. I enjoy seeing students grow and learn and then leave for great opportunities in the work force.
