So, the first thing you need to know about me… is that my wife is amazing. Seriously. She quit her job, left her house, left her church and her friends to move to a state where we knew nobody… so that I could spend the rest of my life in college (graduate school). Not only that… we moved from Colorado to a place that apparently does not really have access to the sun. Oh yes, the joys of the Pacific Northwest!
More about me… I have been to China, Uganda, the Philippines, London England… my favorite cities are San Francisco and New York City. In addition, I have hiked Pike’s Peak three times… and I ran my first marathon in 2013. If I could live anywhere it would be somewhere near Denver Colorado.
I am a 30 something American man, still in college (granted it is graduate school)! No kids yet but my wife and I would love to have some. We currently do foster care and someday we may adopt.
I am working toward my PhD, which I will use to either work at a nonprofit or become an ubercool college professor. My research involves global poverty… looking at things like government, healthcare, infrastructure, and education… and how those large scale processes influence each other.
I would love to become a bestselling novelist. But as long as people read my stories and enjoy them, that is what is more important to me.
Anyway… this blog is about a few of the many things that happen in my life. Some posts are funny, some serious, some sad, some educational. The main topics are writing novels, backyard farming, foster care, adoption dreams, my research and education adventure, travels, fishing and hiking (probably other random things about me too).
I love my wife, I love Jesus, and I love the sun whenever it appears in the Northwest!
