    I was born and raised in San Jose, California and attended St. Victor's School, Bellarmine College Preparatory, and San Jose State University where I received a Bachelors in Computer Science. I was ordained to the priesthood on June 1, 2019. The Cathedral is my first assignment.

    I attended St. Patrick's Seminary & University starting 2012 and finished my theological studies at Mundelein Seminary in Illinois. During my time in seminary, I was fortunate to assist at Villa Siena Senior Living Community, O'Connor Hospital, and Milpitas Correctional Facility. I did my Pastoral Year internship at St. Lucy in Campbell. I am also a member of the Legion of Mary and Knights of Columbus. I graduated from Mundelein Seminary on May 4, 2019.

    “No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” (John 15:13).
