Preston was born in North Carolina but has spent most of his life in Oregon. He attended Rex Putnam High School in Milwaukie and graduated from the University of Oregon in Linguistics. Preston started in Youth Ministry as a High School Sophomore leading a group of middle school boys and has continued ever since serving at local churches, getting involved with Young Life and other para-church ministries working to bridge the gap. While often a home-body, Preston still likes to explore Portland trying new restaurants and finding cool places to hang out with friends. However, when he has the time, he really loves getting out of the city to enjoy the natural beauty of Oregon through hiking and camping.
