Hey thanks for stopping by my little space on the world-wide web. I love to network and get to know people. So take your time and feel free to have a conversation.

I guess I’m suppose to talk about myself, right? Well, here it goes: I’ve been married to my bride, Necole, for 12 years. She’s a cool cat and we love doing life together. Necole is a hairstylist here in Austin. She loves life and people.

We’ve somehow manged to to bring two amazing little girls into this world. Baily and Mackenzie.

I’m a Northern California guy. I’ve also lived in Dallas, Seattle, Raleigh & now Austin, TX. Seattle and Raleigh will always have a special place in our hearts.

Rigth now I’m an Elder at Vista Church & I’m starting a non-profit called Help End Local Poverty.

I love to hang out at third places. Whether that’s at the pub or cafe, I’m usually reading a good book, surfing the web (via my MacBook), listening to some great music, or chatting with creative people within a creative environment.

I love sports- Big time Laker, Raider (forgive me) Red Sox fan. I also dig Notre Dame and Texas in college football and Georgtown Hoyas in college basketball.

I’m an idealist for sure, and I hope to die one. Yes, I want to change the world by re-telling the greatest story ever…The Jesus story.

Like I said, “thanks for stopping by.”

Peace & Love from Austin

  3. Hey compassion,

    I have a friend who owns a graphic company here in Austin. He did the graphic for a church series on “love wins” that we did a few months ago.

    He blogs at:

    Thanks for stopping by!

  4. You live in Austin? I’d like to meet sometime. Get some coffee or something. Talk about faith.

  5. Wow, so I took the time to read this and we have a ton more in common than just the Sox. My wife is from NoCal, Lodi to be exact. Gonna go ahead and say ditto on the paragraph about hanging out, listening to music, etc… Nothing like a good pub with a proper pint of Guinness. Love most those books, most that music, and Ill be adding you as a gamer to my Xbox live. Let’s do it up and chat sometime!

  6. I loved the discussion you started on Rob Bell and Mark Driscoll:).

    I love your blog’s name and noticed by the missions you are endorsing you have a heart for kids.

    May I suggest you check out our blog ( and even our website at

    I would love to get your feedback and hear what you think.

    God bless you!

  7. Oops…almost forgot…

    Seeing you have a link to The Invisible Children site, I especially thought you might be interested in our blog because we have been discussing the issue of America’s Invisible Children…what are we, as the body of Christ…doing to effectively reach them?

  8. Great site and information. Keep up the awesome job.

  9. Nice to meet you! Do you like Mark Twain?
