A travelerI grew up in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia in a rural Mennonite community. I met and married my Coloradan wife in New York 28 years ago and we’ve since traveled the world. Our next adventure is to Kazakhstan to attend the 2017 World’s Expo and then onto Moscow and St. Petersburg.Father of 20OK, OK, it breaks down as follows: the first 10 were Latino children mostly being raised by their Latina grandmother. We became their mentors; they became our first children. Those kids taught us how to parent.The next eight were exchange students. Each lived with us for a year and loved the U.S. Our advice to anyone with kids: host an exchange student. You’ll love it and it’ll make you, your kids and the world a better place.The final two: our daughter is a junior at Davidson — Steph Curry’s alma mater — in Charlotte and our son will be senior at Highlands Ranch High School.

Our current brood includes a Lhasa Apso name Wookie — she rides in a side bag on my mountain bike — a 115-pound Bernadoodle named Plato, a rescued Persian kitten name Kali, the goddess of destruction, and Gizmo, a rescued 3-pound lionhead rabbit. If you come to our backyard for a barbecue, you’ll see them all hanging out together causing trouble.
