The one thing I am passionate about...
I like anything that makes me laugh, but I am most alive when learning and teaching things. Which things? EVERYthing! History, fitness, love, quantum physics, theology, the perfect artichoke dip, bees (even the evil kind), construction, art, scotch... if I don't know about it, tell me everything! I also get excited when designing and leading projects on a team. And I have a serious need for speed. Think Ricky Bobby.
I typically spend my leisure time
I spend most of my free time with friends and family. We beach, play games, go to sporting events, throw parties, go on trips, ski, eat great food, drink great beer, talk about everything, serve in our church, or just hang out and laugh. When I'm solo I'm reading, cooking, at CorePower, watching a movie or catching up with the fam (they live all over, lots of phone calls). I'm also connected with a kids program in the Peruvian Amazon, so I keep up with the team there and visit sometimes. It's pretty neat.
The most influential person in my life has been
A strong sense of self and of the grace and love of Jesus.
The first thing people notice about me
My face. Unless I'm wearing a humor-T. Then it's the humor-T.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Falling Upward, Surprised by Scripture, Napoleon (biography)
The three things which I am most thankful for
- God dropped me into a loving family.
- A gospel-centered church that challenges me.
- Friends who understand grace, forgiveness and joy.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
My unusually broad range of life experience. I even forget sometimes about some of the things I've done and places I've been.
