About Me


I have a full life. Amy and I have been a “thang” since December of 1996, and on May 29th, 1999, we made it legal. Since then, we’ve had four kids (this tends to happen in marriage) who bring so much joy and trial into our lives! Our family has a passion for gardening, art, many different sports, and almost anything that will makes us laugh or dance. Amy and I are in school for Marriage and Family Therapy and look forward to using our training to help children, couples, and families navigate and heal from difficult seasons and various traumas.

Personally, I am on a journey of learning more stories about people in Phoenix, particularly among the vulnerable and marginalized. I have a habit of budgeting too much money for books. My kids keep me from taking myself too serious, and my wife graciously balances my compulsiveness. I love networking between businesses, non-profits, faith communities, and government services. I believe we are better together and long to see more unity and togetherness among those who care about justice and peace.

Currently, our family is living as simple as we can to be able to afford school and make it through without any school debt and providing the needs we have for our family. We are always looking for partners who are able to help support the work we do financially and help us complete school.
If you or any one you know is looking for something or someone to give to, a one time donation, an end of the year tax write-off, or monthly support, please prayerfully consider supporting us or telling others about us.

We fundraise as city missionaries  through a 501(c)3 called City Serve AZ. A link for donations is HERE. You can learn more about what we are about by clicking the Kineo tab on this website.

  1. Do you lead Celebrate Recovery at GCU??? My son just transferred and I’d like for him to connect there ……… He has a great story !!

  2. I used to live in Phoenix (Mesa actually) in the 1990’s. I love that city. I miss it. And I still have a clipping from the newspaper featuring a homeless man who served other needy people and died. His little life celebrated in print!
