About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Selvfølgelig diese Zug ville not ende hier.

ABOUT ME

I grew up in a small town of 200 people in a farming valley in Eastern Oregon. After 5 years of backbreaking labor and sufficient risk of skin cancer, I headed to Gonzaga University to find a real career.

There I grew as person, made most of my current friends, and graduated with an engineering degree. I then transcended into the disillusioned business world of "colleges", "associates" and gray cubicles...3 years later I quit and bought a one-way ticket to Europe.

Now I am settled in Copenhagen with my beautiful wife (that I met "indirectly" through Couchsurfing, and we are raising our newborn son amidst a culture that we have yet to understand.

PHILOSOPHY

Thomas Jefferson said it best: "I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever."

I feel like America has lost its way, if it ever had one, and I'm going to try and find that...while finding myself. As MLK, Jr. said:

"The means by which we live have outdistanced the ends for which we live. Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men."
