…first and foremost, i am a father–my greatest, most fortunate role in life and am now a grandfather which is a next-level kinda blessedness. our family has continued to grow to include 3 “dorters” and 2 partners.
…i’ve been married
three four times (gasp), most recently July 15, 2017 to the best man i know. i am also particularly blessed to remain close to #2, who is truly as graceful as her moniker implies.
…i have 2 brothers and 3 sisters (that I know of ) and they are such incredible blessings to me.
…i worked for the same company for almost 25 years and left it in 2014 to pursue “meaningful work.”
…i have been in seminary in Berkeley, CA since August 2015 studying for a Masters of Divinity and certificates in Sexuality and Religion and Spirituality and Social Change.
…i love to express my creativity in the kitchen and feel a certain contentment when people gathered around our table scarf it up with zeal and quibble over the leftovers. that said, i have not cooked since i left for seminary in 2015.
…i enjoy my friends as much as any man has the right; a good bottle of wine shared with them; a quiet evening with the person i love; reading and writing (altho i do each far too little); social media; thrift store shopping; movies.
you’ll get to know the rest of me on these pages and posts… thanks for reading.
