ABOUT ME

Personal

I’m originally from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and I now live in Seattle. I love music and I listen to a lot of it. I also love finding delight in my day-to-day activities, and a good way to get a sense of my personality is to check out my Instagram story. I try to make the world a little bit better by being authentic, kind and kicking butt at the work I do.

I play basketball and soccer recreationally, dance whenever I can and like to stay active in general because exercise is my anti-depressant. I’m also a certified Schwinn® Cycling Instructor, too… fancy, huh?

I cheer passionately for athletic teams from the University of North Carolina – specifically men’s basketball and women’s soccer – and I’ve been trying with limited success to get better at playing the guitar for a few years. I enjoy doing most anything with my awesome wife, the one and only Ashley Miller, but some of my favorites among our shared activities are travel, snowboarding and karaoke.

Community

I’ve been a volunteer since 2007 with the Service Board, a Seattle nonprofit that mentors teens to conquer personal and cultural challenges through public service and outdoor adventure. I served as a youth mentor for three years in tSB’s program of social justice, service-based community stewardship and snowboarding instruction. In 2013, I was honored to receive the Service Board’s Golden Boot Award for outstanding service.

I also served for three years as a member of the Board of Directors for Youth Media Institute, a Seattle nonprofit focused on empowering youth to tell their personal stories through training in digital media.

Additionally, I was a member of the 2012 class of Leadership Tomorrow, an organization dedicated to enhancing personal and civic leadership skills through a nine-month program centered around community stewardship.

In 2016, I partnered with Urban Artworks to create a mural for Pride Weekend on Capitol Hill in Seattle.
