Alec grew up in Olathe, Kansas and served from a young age in the Technology and Communications ministry at his childhood church, the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection. In high school he decided that he felt called to a career as a pastor in the United Methodist church, but during his time in college, changed his major in college from Religious Studies to Communications. Alec graduated from Baker University in 2018 and has worked in the field of higher education since.
Alec decided to start RCIA in 2018, but moved cities while in the midst of the program, so he started over and eventually was confirmed in the Catholic Church Easter of 2019.
In his free time, Alec tries to spend as much time outdoors as possible, working in his garden, playing tennis, or backpack.
