I think this is the section of the website where I’m supposed to stress normalcy and how much my family and I (wife, Erica; daughter, Summer Joy; sons, Otto, Odie, & Oscar [not pictured]; dog, Lucky [not pictured]) enjoy most things Colorado.  But instead of an onslaught of hobbies and habits, I’d rather just get to know you (and you get to know me); maybe we have tons in common, maybe the only thing we have in common is the truth that Jesus died to forgive us and give us heaven – but that’s not a bad starting point.  Either way, I’d love the chance to talk with you over something brewed locally.  Feel free to contact me to set something up (; call 303.444.7434, or text/call 720.315.0910).

For those to whom background, experience and education matter much, I’ll summarize mine this way:  this sinner-saint was blessed to bounce around our fair country (MI 2x, WI 2x, MN 2x, along with UT, AZ & now CO).  Back in the 1900s, I graduated high school from Michigan Lutheran Seminary, our Synod's Christian high school in Saginaw, Michigan (  In 2003, I completed my undergrad work at Martin Luther College, our Synod's working-training college in New Ulm, MN (; and my graduate studies were at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary, our Seminary in Thiensville, Wisconsin (  After graduation in 2008, I taught courses in Biblical History & Literature at Martin Luther College and, then, in 2010, I got to come to Colorado to teach courses in Old Testament and Christian Doctrine at Rocky Mountain Lutheran High School ( and to be the pastor here at Peace in Boulder – which is now my sole, occupational focus.  Like I said prior . . . blessed.
