I’m terrible at describing myself. Others have thrown around words like Christian, reserved, whimsical, passionate, random, quirky, Darth Vader, complex, dead pan, and sarcastic. If we ever meet you can add to that list. My wife is the most amazing person I’ve ever met and our daughter is 100% awesomesauce. I’ve been very blessed to have a mentor in Mark Cowper-Smith. He taught me how to have a relationship with Jesus, and not just follow a bunch of rules to be a Christian.

I’m currently the Director of Product Marketing for a small San Diego software company. My time in the office is spent doing interface design, product management, and strategy. I’m also working a little side project I hope to share soon.

This site is built entirely of HTML5, CSS3, & Javascript. The main typeface is Elena with supporting roles played by Servek & Pictos. Kyle Steed created the awesome hand drawn sketch of me on this page. I do all of my writing in markdown using ByWord. The markdown files are processed by Jekyll and published via git to a Linode. Page views are tracked by Mint. It’s a funny system, but it works for me.

You can find me on Twitter, and if we get really close on Path.
