INTJ, Baseball History & Analytics Nerd, Maximizer, Futuristic, Avid St. Louis Cardinals fan.

Husband to my wonderful wife, Michelle, father to my beautiful daughter, Bell, and handsome son, Branch. I love cooking and trying food from around the world.

Thanks to my wife, I am expanding my horizons to enjoy musical theater and even ballroom dancing (shhh, don't tell her!).

Recent MSU graduate, and newly married to a goofball named Spencer. Passionate about Justin Timberlake, Parks and Rec, baking from scratch and authenticity. I love C.S. Lewis so much I took a class on him. 

As a coffee aficionado I love connecting with people one on one over coffee, or over a phenomenal brunch at my all time favorite restaurant, First Watch.

Kate Stringer

I love coffee, sleeping, Jesus who loves me perfectly, and whenever I don't have to cook. Take me somewhere with water and I'm happy. Come hang out at my house-- sometimes its messy, but you'll be greeted with warmth and an invitation to play barbies and superheroes.

My husband is a rockstar, my kids (Charlotte and Teddy) are hilarious and fun, and I'm always interested in getting to know the real you!

A true Enneagram 3, F•R•I•E•N•D•S enthusiast, and lover of all dogs. I’m always ready for a game night and I’d love to sit down and get to know you over a cup of coffee. 

I’m passionate about watching movies, going to target, exploring nature, and laughing at my own jokes. And I want to be your friend!

Kelli Carter

“Dairy free” lover of cheese, Gilmore Girls expert, and willing to bust a move at any given time. Newly engaged to my wise and loving fiancé Zach. 

I am a big fan of meeting new people, chatting over coffee, or having game nights at my house. Jesus and people are my favorite parts of life, and I enjoy getting to share that love with others.

Enneagram 7, lover of all jokes/puns, and always up for an adventure! I love Brooklyn Nine-Nine, movie nights, coffee, and a good podcast. Coffee shops are some of my favorite places to hangout, and you can probably find me at one close to MSU’s campus. 

I’m passionate about building relationships with people, and would love to get to know you more!
