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.

Favorite Verse: In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature[a] God did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature[b] of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross!Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

-Philippians 2:5-11
