I grew up in Omaha, NE where I learned the values of hard work, fast friendship, a lived faith, and adventure. From there I moved on to Fort Worth, TX where he studied Religion and Spanish at Texas Christian University. While at TCU I got bit by the international travel bug and made my way to China, Tibet, New Zealand, Australia, Tonga, and Nicaragua. After college I spent a year in the Lutheran Volunteer Corps, working as a Youth Ministry Coordinator at a congregation in urban Chicago. During that year I intentionally lived below the poverty line with a community of folks doing the same. From there I enrolled at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, where my studies focused on interfaith relations. While at LSTC I met my lovely wife Carolyn. I love new adventures of all kinds, whether they be backpacking & camping outdoors, exploring a new part of town, or laying in my hammock reading an epic fantasy novel. I am passionate about the work that God is doing in our world today and am constantly thinking about how we might become better disciples.
