In my off time I am a volunteer instructor for the Northwest Natural Resources Institute for their geology and mining programs, I lecture at schools and mineral clubs around the region, I am a consultant for writers on their screenplays and manuscripts for geological content, and as an Eagle Scout myself, I teach the Geology Merit Badge to Boy Scouts.

I am married to Sarah (cottagegardenstudios on Etsy), have 2 children, a dog, a cat, and lots of iguanas and wild chickens roaming through the yard.
