I am the emergent property of 37 billions cells - that makes me pretty amazing when you think about it (don’t worry - you’re amazing too). You can typically find me around Milwaukee with Emily and our three beautiful and brilliant children. We all have an origin story: I was a youth pastor at a variety churches for a long time and now I take photos and explore what the next evolution of religion in America might look like.
Additionally, I am quite curious, a learner and thinker, a communicator, a party convener, a pop culture curator, an advocate for millennials, and a deep believer in underdogs.
Things I love:
interesting people (basically everyone)
photography + design (team Nikon)
computers and technology (team apple)
coffee, beer + bourbon (ethiopian yirgacheffe, dragons milk + grimbergen + guldendraak, whistlepig)
movies (marvel, starwars, weird niche stuff)
epic tv series (West World, Agents of Shield, Altered Carbon, Handmaid’s tale)
fantasy novels (Terry Brooks, Elizabeth Moon,
nerdy books (ancient cultures, philosophy + theology, etc.)
music (especially on vinyl)
nature (hiking, mountains, giant-old-trees, oceans, rivers)
Enneagram 7 (and a half - its a real thing) 8wing, social instinct
Aries (with an Aries wing)
