What you are is God's gift to you; what you become is your gift to God

I have spent most of my life just about as confused as everyone else is in regards to who I am. I can't answer the question "Where are you from?" because frankly, I'm not too sure myself. Typically I will ask you to be more specific or I will pick whatever nationality I feel like being on that particular day. I collect nationalities, and also change accents depending on who I am talking to or where I am. This may seem a little unusual for some of you, so for your benefit, I will attempt to explain a little about myself.

I was born and raised in a missionary family. My father is Canadian and my mother is French. I was born in France, but grew up in Chad, Botswana and more recently, Australia. I completed school in Melbourne, Australia at which point I went on to study architecture. After completing my degree, I lived and worked in Japan for several months.

For the past six months, I've been living in British Columbia, Canada. Currently I am plotting my next move as I prepare to work with Engineering Ministries International for six months in the new year. This is an exciting opportunity for me as I combine ministry and my training to serve the underprivileged.

This is a space in which I can share about the ministry and my experiences. I invite you to get in touch and ask me questions. I would love the opportunity to talk and share more.
