Background: I was Born in Hull, IA and lived in small town Inwood, IA for the first 8 years of my life. I moved here to Sioux Falls, SD and started second grade at Sioux Falls Christian. I got interested in music and started playing guitar around the age of 12. My guitar teacher was the head of a music ministry called Happy the Dog, and I started getting involved with that when I was about 15. I loved helping lead and continued to pursue that through Happy the Dog, the Ransom Church and their LOOP ministry, and other various opportunities that God placed in front of me. I began homeschooling in 8th grade with the LLA co-op, as well as taking videography and video editing classes at CTE. Now I am a student at USF studying Multimedia Production and Music Ministry/Youth Ministry. MY hobbies include music and guitar (obviously), Ultimate Frisbee, Golf, and videography. My favorite TV show is Seinfeld, my favorite video game is Super Smash Bros, and I enjoy watching the Minnesota Twins and the Iowa Hawkeyes.
