In short, I help people share their story.
This usually happens in three ways.
I speak/teach, create websites for people, and help people create podcasts.
I walk along side of people and encourage them to live a story that is worth sharing. I help others lean into what that looks like for them.
So, a lot of my days are spent meeting with people over coffee and helping people dream.
I’ve found that most people have a story they are longing to create or be a part of, but often they need help getting there.
That’s what I do. I help people live into their story.
How'd This Happen?
The short of it: I jumped. I quit my day job to live a better story.
This didn’t happen overnight. I’ve worked in some form of relational ministry for the better part of 8 years. While having a steady job, I had been dipping my toes into the freelance world a lot.
Then I started my first podcast with my friend Terry Linhart. My life changed from that moment forward.
I started to get asked to speak at large conferences, (and they were becoming more regular). I started to be asked to emcee for larger and larger events.
I started to develop websites for friends and family. And then for friends of friends. And then for people that I didn’t know.
And most recently, I started helping people create podcasts.
This all came to a head when I felt a nudge to leap into the deep end and try this thing on full size. So that’s what I did. I quit my day job to live a better story, and hopefully I’m enabling others to do the same.

Some Core Values
The reason I do what I do, is people. I love hearing individual stories and walking along side of people and helping them achieve their dreams. People are the most important thing in the world, and I hope to live a life that represents this belief.
This might seem like a strange core value, but it represents who I am and what I want to be about. Let me explain. I am hopeful that people want to live a better story. I am hopeful that tomorrow will be better than today. I am hopeful that we can find a way to love each other well as humans. I am hopeful that creating together is a part of making the world a better place.
If we can trust each other, we can change the world. If I know you have my back, and you know I have yours, we start to form a team that is unbreakable. The people that I work with become a part of a larger team, hoping to create and change the world. This isn’t about growing a tribe, it’s about working hand and hand, and growing together.
