I live in Austin, Texas. I am a father of 4 children, aged 4 – 11. I am a UX Designer professionally, but ventures in printmaking, drawing, songwriting, writing, and storytelling make my heart come alive. My wife, Robin, is a Charlotte Mason educator and homeschools our children. I enjoy reading, listening to music and creating things. Leaves and sticks make me cry and I live with a persistent ache in my soul that the world is full of both beauty and sorrow.
