Family: Sarah, Abigail (2 ½), Gloriah (8 months)

Full Time Job: Small business management

Is this what you thought you’d be doing when you were in college?  Yes, for the most part.  Seeking to honor God in life and business, to bless the community, provide jobs, etc, etc. 

What do you dream about doing 10 years from now?  I dream about helping start or improving businesses in the harder areas of the world, with my wife, mentoring and coaching others in this kind of work not only in the tasks at hand but in all of life.

Favorite UNI Memory: Wow, many!  Clogged toilet overflowing from 1st floor Promised Land, dripping onto our kitchen table cloth, and us still using it.  Attending Sunday morning service and noticing various men wearing familiar articles of clothing from my closet.  Paul Shepard and the green chair.  Mark and his “borrowed” toothbrush.  Paul scaring the liver out of Doug.  Doug and his mobile mattress.  Fast asleep and then woken up buy JT coming into my bedroom dressed as an old lady, was I dreaming?!  BASIC, Friday Night Alives, Dave Busby Main Event, DC trip for PKeepers, etc. etc.

(Optional) Any other comments or shout-outs to specific people:   My roommates (Doug, Mark and Paul) and other brothers…God used all of you to seal my heart to Him.  Junior/Senior year was such a life changer for me b/c of the fellowship.  It is amazing how He uses the Body in such powerful ways to change a life forever, thanks for the sharpening brothers!
