Accomplishments: His working accomplishments started while he was still a student at SNU, where he began two technology companies that he later sold sometime after graduation. He is one of the leading voices in the Church as it relates to innovation and the use of technology. He frequently writes and speaks on this topic and has been featured in a number of publications including the Washington Post, CNN, CBS, and NPR. In 2011, he was listed by Fast Company as one of the 100 Most Creative People in Business.
In His Words: “SNU was really instrumental in helping to shape and solidify my faith, while at the same time providing an environment that encouraged passions that I had inside of me. I consider the investment of the faculty and administration key in the early success that I had as an entrepreneur. Ultimately, the faith foundation that was built at SNU proved to be key in the decision to transition from a full time business role into vocational ministry.”
