About Me


In pursuit of wisdom. I've also stumbled across a story that's fascinating to me that I'm trying to put in book form.


My wife, Sarah, and I have two little children. We have both traveled quite a bit and I especially love to see what's going on in our awesome but broken world. I grew up on a farm and was blessed with great parents and grandparents. I work for myself and love it in downtown Chattanooga, Tennessee.


It's not about me. There are opportunities and adventures all around if I keep my eyes and mind open.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've been to city meetings and met people for lunch.


I enjoy reading, meeting people and seeing new places. I enjoy teaching and learning!
