About Me: 

Hello, I have recently become the Director for the Areopagus campus ministry at Iowa State University. I am new to Iowa State and to the campus ministry world. I am also new to married life. My beautiful wife, Erin, and I were married in July of 2010 and our first year has been very good. I look forward to working with students and learning from you all and sharing my experiences as well. Justin

Interests:

I also enjoy spending time outdoors with my wife hiking and walking our dog. We both enjoy camping, and hope to find some time to do that soon. I also enjoy fishing when I find time.
