Our friend Nicole Smith is running (literally) a campaign this summer as an extension of our friends at Dribble the World. I could write here why Nicole is dribbling…yes dribbling a basketball in four 1/2 marathons this summer but you can listen to her give her own description to the Twin Cities when she was interviewed on the local news morning show on Friday, June 3.

I have three daughters. The thought of them ending up in some human sex trafficking ring makes me literally want to vomit. I am supporting Nicole’s efforts by participating in one of the races this summer. You don’t have to run and/or dribble to assist her in the quest of ending human trafficking. There are many other ways to participate. Find out more at the Race To Her Facebook Page



I am married to a beautiful woman named Gretchen and have three amazing girls - Tori, Isabelle, and Macie. I live in the Twin Cities area currently but I was born & raised in Columbus, OH and will always be a buckeye. I have the privilege of being a part of my faith community - The Garden Communities - and seeing the Kingdom of God expanded on the campuses of Minneapolis/St. Paul. I enjoy watching OSU football, playing basketball, drinking amazing coffee & sharing a meal with friends & family.
