About Me


I live to help, serve, love, learn, teach, share, meet, live, and know the amazing people I find all around me


I'm a high school teacher in the San Juan Islands in Washington and am spending the summer wandering through Europe with my wife. We love meeting new people and exploring new places because you never know what you are going to find, and so far it has been amazing!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Digging water ditches in the jungles of Thailand.
Cliff jumping on Greek Islands.
Hiking in the monasteries of Meteora, Greece.
Building a wild homemade sauna in the Carpathians with my Ukrainian buddies.
Bribed my way around on trains in Ukraine.
Traveled around with a university Orchestra through Poland.
Bribed my way through the Moldovan/Ukrainian border.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to teach, learn, and share music! I play string and electric bass, and guitar. I love to jam!
I love sourdough baking! If we can get our hands on some starter, I would love to bake some bread for you, or even cinnamon rolls.
But I am also a student of theology, thought, and what makes us who we are. Sharing experiences like that is all a part of living together on this big blue ball.
