So, I am a God fearing, husband to one amazing woman, an IT professional, camera wielding, part-time runner, outdoor enthusing, tinkering, coffee loving man. I am currently Co-Founder of Thirty Five Media in Bozeman, MT as well as an IT Manager for TREC, Inc. and a Creative Director at Venture Church. The plate is usually full, but I wouldn't trade it for anything!

Our little guy is now 10 months old! Though he’s not crawling yet, he can scoot and roll and can move quicker than both mom and dad are ready for. He’s a happy, healthy baby boy who brings regular joy into our lives. It helps that he sleeps through the night…
