Married to beautiful Anjuli. Father of strong Manoah and gentle Samuel. Pastor of middle school and college at Mission Hills Church. Student at Talbot School of Theology in the Institute for Spiritual Formation. Born in Bend, OR but consider Escondido, CA my hometown. Fan of the swinging (but often striking out) Friars, for non-baseball fans that is the SD Padres. Also a fan of music, books, coffee, the ocean (particularly the Pacific), LOST, Tolkien, cheese, cooking, tasty beverages, my wife’s photography, good poetry, grass, the smell of surf wax, and something else.

Otherwise I live a relatively uninteresting life: but it is good, true, and beautiful. As Ralph Waldo Emerson so succinctly said, “At some point everyone realizes that envy is ignorance; that imitation is suicide; that like it or not, we are who we are; that despite the infinite abundance in the universe, nothing good can come to us except by working that little plot of land that we are given to farm.”
