Home schooled, the oldest of 10 kids, and married to an American girl raised in Thailand. Conversations are never dull!

Currently working as a writer and photographer in Europe, I’ve done a  bit of everything – from cleaning carpets to roofing houses… I once listened to Paradise Lost while working in a crawlspace for eight hours. Replacing old insulation was never more epic!

I love stories that surprise me, and I hope my stories inspire and surprise you in the ways they did me. If so, I’ve succeeded.


I love to connect with others who are similarly-inspired!
Feel free to send me an email.
