Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. Married for 13 years, and father of 6 - five that are living. I am returning to the roots of my great great grandfather by living in Kentucky.
Worked construction and then waited tables at Red Robin. Learned how to beat the game of blackjack in 2001 and spent 9 years playing, running a team, managing investors and starting a website that trains people how to count cards. There was a documentary made about it. Co-founded Epipheo in 2008 and am currently on the board of directors. I am working with my friend Colin on Financial Apprenticeship. Our mission is to “To release people from the bondage of financial slavery by giving them a bigger story to live for and equipping them with the tools to get there.” I’m in the process of writing a book with the working title “Disappointed Millionaire”, and have just re-kindled a passion for making videos with my kids. You can check out our channel on YouTube.
I enjoy writing, tattoos, Mount Rainier, creating and gardening, finding freedom from fear, learning to love boundlessly, living in community, and eating strawberry shortcake (the real kind, NOT angel food cake). My highlight of the year was completing 2 marathons with my 8 year old son.
There are many different places to find me. The easiest way is to stop by for dinner. I’m skeptical about the dangers of social media but I understand that sometimes it is the only way so you can read my occasional posts on Twitter, hear longer thoughts and see pictures and stay up to date on pretty much everything on Facebook, and we can sign up to make each other’s resumes look better (even though I never want to have a job that requires a resume) on LinkedIn.
