A little more about Brian…

Family
I met my wife Erin on a First Covenant (now GraceSpring) mission trip to Ecuador in November of 2003. I knew she was “the one” before I ever laid eyes on her (seriously, ask me about it sometime). We were married in California seven months later and spent half of our honeymoon driving across the country to Vero (still not sure what we were thinking with that idea!). We have two incredible kids, Ethan & Anna, who are full of personality, and usually keep us in a state of both laughter and prayer. God is good!

Favorite book in the Old Testament
Probably Psalms, although lately I have been drawn back to Nehemiah. 
 
Favorite book in the New Testament
Philippians
 
What is you favorite local park or beach?
I love taking the family to the North Jetty at Ft. Pierce Inlet for a day at the beach, or just heading there for a couple hours of surfing.

What is your favorite local restaurant?
Asking me to pick one favorite restaurant is kind of like asking me to pick my favorite child, I just can’t do it! So, here are some of my current favorites…

Taco Mobil
Noodle House
Kata
La Granja
 

Dream Vacation
I’d love to spend a few weeks in northern Peru and surf one of the world’s longest waves, Chicama. Aside from that, any vacation that involves spending a great deal of time in the ocean is pretty dreamy.

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Aqua Man or an 80’s Rockstar. (Strangely the outfits for either would’ve been very similar).
