What is there to say about me? Well, I grew up in the Eagle Rock neighborhood of Los Angeles and I have a degree in politics from Occidental College (Class of 1995). In high school, I was the charter captain of the Star Trek Club and was heavily involved in Key Club. That involvement carried into my college years with significant involvement in Circle K International (the college branch of the Kiwanis Family of organizations).
In 1996, I moved to Seattle to take part in a church program called Intentional Communities. In a nutshell, it involved community living with four other people, volunteering at a Christian agency serving street-involved youth, and actively pursuing my own walk of faith.
During the two years in which I was involved in the Intentional Community (IC) program, I grew close to one of my housemates, Alissa, and we started dating after the program ended. We were married in 2000. Eventually, we bought a house in Marysville, WA but moved to our current home in South Everett to improve our commutes after our son was born. We have two wonderful children. Harry was born in 2006 and Annie was born in 2008.
So, what can you expect from me? Well, I’ve given you a few clues. I love political debate, so there will be plenty of politics in my posts, but there will be plenty of other stuff. Religion, movies, TV shows, life in general. Who knows? I may even throw in some photography, poetry, and snippets of fiction.
