He went home and earned an Associate’s Degree (A.A.S.) in Architectural Technologies at Front Range Community College. During this time, he joined Grace Evangelical Free Church and served as a youth leader for several years. After several years in the construction world, Dido felt the Lord call Him again to get into ministry. He graduated from Regent University with a Bachelors in Christian Ministry (B.A.) as well as Full Sail University with a Masters in Creative Writing (M.F.A.). He has also completed several Seminary classes from Liberty University in Theology and Pastoral Counseling. Dido loves football especially his Denver Broncos.

Dido has been married (5+ years) to his best friend Brittany (Brit), who is from Louisiana, and they have one seven year old “child” – their furry (dog) Stryder.
