I grew up in Kirkland, Washington and excluding a few excursions, I have lived in the Seattle area my whole life. You might call me a perfectionist, an artist or a homemaker, but in truth I am defined by the fact that Jesus loved me enough to die in order to be in relationship with me.

Above all, I am passionate about Jesus, my family and proclaiming my joy about both to the world. Outside of the home, my interests include filmmaking, photography, theater, writing, music and pretty much all the other art forms I haven't mentioned. I am a social person and tend to cram my schedule full of activities... even when I don't have time for them. That's probably the only disorganized thing about me! I like to have my life as neat and tidy as possible. And yes, having kids challenges that greatly :).

God has blessed me greatly and it becomes all the more evident the longer I am living in this beautiful world. I am married to my best friend, we have the cutest children on the planet, we have an amazing community of friends, we're part of a wonderful church and we are consistently provided for. God is incredibly good and I look forward to spending the rest of my life sharing His goodness with the world!

I also am a professional wedding and portrait photographer. You can check out my work here.
