Gorgeous
 
"Eternal Vitality" - The Kilauea volcano crater (1247m) in Hawaii last night. I spent two days by the crater waiting for the clouds to disappear, the lava glow to be as low as possible and for the milky way to be positioned right before this became possible.

In order to capture this I had to use a 4-stop graduated ND filter and polarizer. Camera 5DIII with 30seconds/F1.4/ISO4000.

The beer list. That's the important thing. Although I'll probably try the bulgogi spare ribs no matter what!

The Wisdom of the Great and Terrible Humbug

Introduction
Born and  raised in North Dakota, attended Moody Bible Institute, served in the summer ministries of Camp of the Woods and Deerfoot Lodge, and started post-college life as the Director of Youth and Awana Ministries at Covenant Presbyterian Church Chicago. 

I currently serve as the Guidance Counselor and high school Bible teacher for Our Redeemer's Christian School in Minot, North Dakota. I love my job. Engaging the hearts and minds of students with the transforming grace of the gospel is like hitting the jackpot each and every day.
  
I love the backcountry, philosophy, and Jesus. Some of my favorite movies are Western epics. I make music, love war-games, and enjoy pleasing my taste-buds with flavors from around the world. 
Bragging rights
I grow a mean beard. I have the privilege of playing violin and mandolin in a band called The Denby Forest. Boss.
