I can think of few things I like less than writing about myself. I am not a self-promoter. That said, you clicked on this page because you wanted to know a bit more…well…about me. So here goes.
I am a husband, father, follower of Jesus, YouTube content creator, artist, and friend. When I like something, I like it – I mean I get loyal to it. Some things I really like are Starbucks, Disney, and Apple. I am drawn to them because they are not just products, but cultures.
My faith is huge for me. I have given my life to serve Christ personally and professionally. I love the Church and the church. Until recently, I served as a minister at churches. I love to grow God’s people particularly “on the job” on missions trips, service projects, and serving events.
I also love a good restaurant and a few of my favorite places are Tartine Bakery (San Francisco), It’s Italia (Half Moon Bay), Palo’s (Disney’s Cruise Ships). There are others, but these rise to the top for me.
I recently moved to Charleston, SC and am looking forward to discovering and experiencing it’s charm. At first glance I am already in love with the historical downtown, the trees draped with Spanish Moss, and beautiful marshlands. Admittedly I am struggling to find even passable Chinese food, but I’ve got time to keep looking.
The coast and inland valleys, bluffs and woods are inspiration for much of my ‘newfound’ joy, watercolor painting. In 2017 I took up the hobby. It has since become more than that having been in various shows, selling works and having the online store. I am humbled by people’s response. Please take time to look at my gallery pages.
I heard someone say that it seems speakers have only one message they share over and over in different ways. If that is true then my message is a narrative of persevering through suffering. I don’t feel I have suffered any more than anybody else, I just have come to realize that suffering and yielding to God in the midst of it is His primary way to grow us up. It’s a passion of mine to help people move from disillusionment to maturity.
I hope you will take time to look through my art gallery, check out some of the messages I spoke to my previous church, and even head on over to our YouTube channel. On the channel we share a whole host of things we love and experience.
