What were you doing prior to entering seminary? I was getting a degree in Computer Science at the University of Texas in Austin. I graduated in 2014 and then entered seminary!
In short, what is your vocation story? Why are you in seminary today? The Lord put the idea of priesthood in my heart since I was very young. However, I ran from it for forever. As time went on, and as I grew in my love for the Lord, the call got very enticing and I couldn't run away from it anymore. I'm very excited to be on this journey to which He has called me!
Advice to other men considering the priesthood: Pray, pray, and pray. Stay close to our Blessed Mother. Did I say pray?

Hobbies or Interests: Mountaineering, reading, running, soccer, praying.
