About Brian

A former Tulsan, I’ve called Colorado Springs home since 2007. I love hiking 14ers, but am no technical climber. Hobbies include hiking, camping, vegetable gardening, and writing. Sadly, I used to include tennis on that list, but I discovered pickleball is kinder on my knees.

Birthday: September 11

Birthplace: Tulsa, OK

Current Residence: Colorado Springs, CO

College: Oklahoma State

High School: Holland Hall

Relationship Status: Married to an amazing woman!

Political Views: Fiscally Conservative, Socially Responsible, Frustrated with All Politicians.

Religious Views: I find wisdom in many, but follow only Jesus.

Favorite Music: Southern Rock, Blue Grass, Rocked-Out Old Hymns

Movies that Make Me Cry (every time):

  • It’s a Wonderful Life (one day, sooner or later, God will show us whose lives we’ve touched in a positive way)
  • Gladiator (a man’s man, dying for the right cause)
  • Paddington 1 & 2 (seriously, you need to watch these movies)
  • Babe (a farmer sticks to his guns, when everyone else thinks he’s crazy)
  • Elf (no one believed him, until . . . )
  • Homeward Bound (I used to love showing this on overnight bus trips to unsuspecting teens . . . I would flip the interior lights on at the crucial moment when the toughest kids were wiping their eyes)

Favorite Books: Disappointment with God, Into Thin Air, When You Can’t Come Back, Lindbergh, The Fourth Turning, Messy Spirituality, The Hiding Place, The Chronicles of Narnia, Rainbow Six.

Favorite Quote: “There are two ways to get enough: One is to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.” – G.K. Chesterton

  1. I’m stalking you…. you had your favorite movie in FB as The Mission (which is a great movie) and it’s not here…. just wondering how favorite it really is 🙂

  2. Brian, I was heading to Tulsa today for a deal at the Philbrook museum and i thought of you. I googled your name and found this site. It looks like you are doing well and serving the Lord. I will pray for your ministry. Hope all is well. Steve Hanebaum

  3. hey Brian,

    What a blessing to look at your pics that you have posted here. You make me sick however – you look too young for a 50 year old man! Glad to see you are doing well. Hope we can catch up sometime.
    Hope your family is doing well.
