I am an ordinary guy, blessed with an extraordinary life. I live and breathe with an amazing wife I call "sj" and three other sweet humans who call me dad. I live beneath a canopy of redwoods and enjoy serving in an intentional community. I value the gospel being lived and spoken when necessary. I search, and I strive to be what I hope to find in others, genuine, real, and authentic. I love spending time with children watching them discover themselves while discovering their Savior.
