  About Me

My roots are here in the Northwest. I was born in Seattle, and while I've lived in other states over the years, I returned to this beautiful area to settle with my wife and family.

I met my wife Cindy in 1980 while attending Northwest University in Kirkland, and we were married in 1981. I obtained a BA in Biblical Literature at Northwest, and we served in pastoral ministry in Alaska, Pennsylvania, California, and Florida. In 1985 I was licensed as a minister, and ordained in 1988. I collected an M.A. in Religious Education from Southwest Baptist Theological Seminary in 1993.

Cindy and I have two children: Ashlee and Shawn. Ashlee was born in New Castle, Pennsylvania in 1987, and our son Shawn was born in 1991 in Fortuna, California.

Over the last 25 years, I've found it to be a great fulfillment in my life to walk alongside and support people as they honor and celebrate the lives of their loved ones. I've journeyed with people during these types of gatherings for 25 years, and it would be a true privilege to walk this path with you.
