He has served as the Junior Deacon at Corpus Christi Lodge 189 for the 2018-2019 Masonic Year.
Searching for more light joined into the York Rite advancing to Royal Arch Master and Select Master Degree on 16 June 2017. He was Knighted in the Corpus Christi Commandry Number 57 on 17 June 2017. He is currently serving as Deputy Thrice Illustrious Master and as Recorder of the Commandry. He is also Junior Warden of the Chapter 91 of the Corpus Christi Royal Arch Masons.
Striving for light is his passion. He believes learning must never stop and sharing the knowledge one gains not only from books but, from the wisdom a brother gained from years of experience is what keeps the passion for masonry moving forward. One day perhaps he hope he will be able to share what he has learned in Masonic wisdom to younger brothers. His eyes have been open wide in amazement at the love our Brethren show toward one another. He believes that men are not perfect in understanding the imperfect and at moving past it. He looks to smarter, more experienced, loving, understanding brethren who are there to help guide the younger masons, like himself, to make better choices, is a purpose he feels everyday which compels him to be more understanding and loving of his fellow man and try to be better Man and Mason.
