Santa Monica, CA
Growing up in western Oregon and spending many summers at the A/U Ranches, mostly in the rafting program, gave me a great appreciation for outdoor activities. After working at A/U full time as a camp director and 100 Elk director, my wife Allison and I traveled around the world filming a land management promotional video for the Savory Institute. We visited many amazing places and decided that Buena Vista was where we wanted to settle. We started a multimedia company and planted ourselves in town for the next 20 years.
Allison and I recently moved to Santa Monica, California where I’m the Director of Advancement at Berkeley Hall School, the oldest co-ed independent school in Los Angeles.
I’ve enjoyed accompanying The Link School on rafting, kayaking, skiing and mountain biking excursions as well as teaching photography, video production, and cooking classes. I love seeing the growth in each student as they experience new things, participate in the family-like community and gain a better understanding of the divine.
When I’m not working, I’m riding my mountain bike, exploring hikes in our nearby mountains, enjoying the culinary variety that comes with living in a city, or running the sound board for Allison’s band in Orange County.
