Disability advocate and coach by day. Scouter by night. Cast iron chef under cloak and dagger.

I’ve been a scouter for 10 years and was a scout for 10 years before that. I got a bunch of cast iron cookware donated to my low-income scout troop and that lit a spark and started a FIRE. My wife was the foodie in our house and is still the head chef, but when it comes to cast iron cooking and roasting coffee, I get to wear the crown.

On September 10th, 2010, I turned The Patient Girlfriend into The Patient Wife. God built her a special throne up in heaven for marrying me, and I won’t soon forget it.

I have a huge soft spot for scouts and awkward kids. I work very part time for the Boy Scouts but the way I talk about it, you’d think it was my career. We go camping all the time and this is where I’ll share the adventures with the world.
