A BIT MORE:

IF I grew up, it was somewhere between…

Worcester, MA and Cape Cod... 

My credentials for my job are…

Like all CEO’s, I was selected for this job after proving that I was the worst at every other position.

Also… I know how to bait lobstah pots, catch wicked big tunahs, and hunt for elk. My parents left me in charge (once), and I've made every leadership mistake you can think of.

In another life, I’d like to think I was…

A soldier in the American Revolution...that would have been pretty awesome.

The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is…

Believe none of what you hear, and half of what you see.

Something I’d like to fix about how business is done…

Create something more meaningful to aim for besides just more transactions. What ELSE could we be doing along the way to make the world better? Answer - Let’s make Work Personal Again!

Some little known skills or talents that most people don’t know I have are…

I’m a pilot, a captain, a decent shot, I'm pretty good at building things, and my super power is spotting animals while driving. Drives my wife Shelly crazy.

Top three (3) pet peeves…

Slurping, talking with mouth full, people who don't appreciate the price of our liberty - not in that order.

On Sunday mornings, you can usually find me…

With my family, building or fixing something, at church, or in the woods.

My favorite word in the English language is…

LIBERTY!

If I won the lottery tomorrow, I’d be…

…doing exactly what I’m doing

When I’m not working, I enjoy…

Being with my family, building things, hunting.

When I was 5, I was pretty sure that when I grew up I’d be…

A commercial fisherman

Cats or Dogs?

Dogs!

I’ve lived in Portland for…

…about 7 years, not all at once

My top three favorite Podcasts / Books are…

The Bible, God’s Game, Elk Talk, The Theft of America’s Soul.

“Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not gravitate toward godliness, prayer, obedience to Scripture, faith, or delight in the Lord a.k.a. “Greatness”. 

We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; we drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; we drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the indiscipline of lost self-control and call it relaxation; we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves we have been liberated.
