ABOUT THIS BLOG
This is a space where I can play with new adventures and ideas. I also have a Youtube Channel where I test out my passion for storytelling and videography. Come follow long, I’d love to have you join me!
You may have noticed the words “be a Jesus learner” on the header of the website. It’s something that began to rattle around in my brain while I’ve been digging deeper into discipleship and following Jesus. One of the main, secular ways of defining disciple in ancient Greek was learner. I love how many define disciple as follower or student, but learner hits me where I need it. A learner has to always be watching, asking questions, failing, trying again, mimicking the teacher’s hands and motions, and being willing to keep showing up each day. To learn more. To soak up the next step. It’s daily walk and an exciting one. Especially, when your teacher and master is the creator and SAVIOR of the universe! Anything can happen and does! I pray I can be learning and growing everyday.
My wife calls me a passionate person. I can quickly get very excited about a lot of different things. This site will hopefully give me a chance to wrangle the biggest ones into one place.
I am a follower of Christ, husband and father. .
My interest in people may have possibly led you here. Maybe we talked about music, education, worship, Jesus, cooking, vision strategy, politics, jamming, DMB, branding, Apple or maybe how very small rocks really could float in the water. We may also have just met randomly on an airplane and you’d like to continue chatting about that “change the world” idea you told me about. I know I would. Feel free to drop me a line anytime.
A perfect day might be filled by thinking, creating, innovating and sharing new ideas among a group of other passionate dreamers.So when I ask things like … “What makes you tick?” “What’s your THING?” “What gets your gears moving?” I’m just as excited to hear about it as you are to share it. Maybe in in the midst of that idea whirlwind, insights will be gleaned and something new in each of us will emerge. And really, what’s more exciting than that?
Currently, I get to ask a lot of questions and get asked plenty as well! I am the NewSong Worship Leader at St. John Lutheran Church & School in Cypress, TX. We have an awesome team and fantastic church family here. It’s wonderful to be living out God’s ministry everyday. It’s definitely a blast! I am extremely blessed.
When I’m not at work I’m enjoying life with my lovely wife, Emily, and our little boys, Will & Gus. Emily shows me so much support, care, encouragement and love that I don’t know what to do with it. She listens to my crazy ideas and lets me dream big dreams. It’s amazing the adventures we’ve been on and I know there are plenty to come! She spends her days raising our little guy at home while running her own business, Orange Verb Design. Her clients are all across the field as well as the country. An awesome mom and creative designer! www.orangeverb.com
