I am currently the Chief Development Officer for Young Life. I have been in other roles — Senior Vice President, Regional Director, and Area Director. I have been involved with Young Life since 1981.
This is my personal blog. It is focused on being intentional about your life, your leadership, and your relationships. My philosophy in life is that we are all given one big gift – time, and how can we be thoughtful and intentional with the time we have.
I write on leadership, life, Jesus, productivity, transformation, and yes, a recipe here and there! Over the years I have met with people who have said, “Can I get a copy of that?” “Where did you find that?” “Could I write that down?” “Would you mind helping me with this?”
The goal of my blog is to increase my ability to help and influence people. I am striving to broaden my influence and, Lord willing, to help others be more intentional about their lives.
My goal is to inspire, help, and hopefully assist you to BE BETTER. If you want to get more from your life, your relationships, your leadership – then this blog is for you.
My goal is to blog as often as material seems to present itself.

I have worked in Young Life my entire career. I started as a partner in 1987 after graduating from Willamette University with a BS in English. In the past 25 years I have had a variety of amazing experiences and had the chance to work with amazing people.
I have been married to my wife, Marni, for 15+ years. We have two sons, Hudson and Charlie, and live in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
In my free time, I enjoy golfing, walking, reading, and yard work. We attend Fellowship of the Rockies as our church home. In the past years I have been coaching basketball, soccer, and volunteering in Boy Scouts.
