More about me:

My work has been significantly shaped by the insights and support from my wife Kalyn Falk who is a spiritual director, retreat leader, trainer and incredible mother/resource to our two boys Jase and Noah and the ever growing circle of others that we call family.

I love landscaping (gardening during the summer and ice sculptures during winter). Sometimes I get an idea for a project and it is like an itch that just wont go away until I find a way to make it happen.

What I love about being part of the FS team:

I love the passion and high level of competence that the team brings to some very challenging situations combined with a good dose of lighthearted fun.

 

A few books I would recommend:
