I live in Oregon and enjoy spending time with my wife, son, and daughter. Of course, I love spending time enjoying all that Oregon has to offer. I love to travel, and enjoy going off the beaten path, and see what most people never see. I also love to write, and always have ideas floating around in my head. As a Catholic I focus mostly on how the teachings of Christ should be implemented in my relationship with my family and with society, especially the poor and vulnerable. My wife and I befriend and advocate for the homeless, prostitutes and women trapped in domestic violence. Recently we began serving those in Kenya who no one else reaches with creative ways of giving them the dignity of working themselves out of poverty.
