quick facts

I'm a thirty-sum writer and speaker living in San Diego, CA. From ages 18-28 I owned several businesses related to photography and web design. In 2012, I began seminary (M.Div, Westminster Seminary California, 2016) with the aim of becoming a pastor. I have published articles on issues related to technology, social media, missions, and theology. Even more than writing, I like to introduce people to quality I've discovered along the way. I feel most at home when having thoughtful conversations.

My wife, Ashley, and I love the outdoors. We camp whenever possible and dream of through-hiking the JMT. Fun fact, when I was twenty-five, I rode a bicycle by myself from Washington to San Francisco, 1500 miles.

I've served as Deacon at Oceanside United Reformed Church, in Carlsbad, CA, for three years. I am also licensed to exhort in the URCNA and available for pulpit supply.

The name is similar, but this is where I host my writing on a variety of subjects related to Christian faith and living.

I have traveled quite a bit and enjoy sharing my stories, photos, and gear reviews. They might inspire you to walk somewhere, too.
