He served in the United States Marine Corps as an officer and reached the rank of Captain. He was stationed in Okinawa, Japan, for over a year as a Platoon Commander.
He entered Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) in 1999. He was permanently incorporated into the FSSP on April 8, 2005, and ordained a deacon the next day on April 9. Ordination to the priesthood followed on June 3, 2006.
