Meet John

I was born and raised in Kenya, the second of seven children. From an early age, I developed two passions: tutoring and being an active member of my Catholic Parish and inspiring others in our Catholic faith. I was a leader of a Small Christian Community group; served in Catholic youth leadership; and was a member of VIDES Kenya, a volunteer organization that served underprivileged children in the Nairobi area.

I began speaking when I was in high school, and I realized God gave me a gift to evangelize, to inspire, and to help people experience the joy of the Gospel. When I saw many Catholics being afraid and unsure of how to share their faith, I wanted to help, to defend, and become more engaged in our faith, talking about it with people and sharing my testimony of what God has done in my life. ​

My wife Katie and I have three beautiful sons, Joey, Caleb, and Leo. 

​I am a fourth-degree member of the Knights of Columbus and a lector at my parish, St. John Chrysostom in Wallingford, Pennsylvania.

As a Catholic Speaker, I am an approved speaker in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and as a Life Coach, I am a certified DISC consultant, and leadership trainer through the John Maxwell Team.

I enjoy spending time with my family, scripture studies, teaching leadership, reading, and gardening.
