I have a degree in Mass Communications, but currently work only on a volunteer basis. My dream as a filmmaker used to be to move to Hollywood and direct independent features, but now it is to travel and create films to raise awareness for non-profit ministries around the world.
In fall 2014 we moved out of the St. Louis suburbs and into a 100-year-old restored house in the city. We have lived with friends and several international students, both short-term and long-term. In addition, we regularly host house shows and provide lodging to independent touring bands.
I quit my day job in summer of 2016. Even though I liked working, it was time for me to invest in my family first. I say that I’m an early retiree because it sounds exciting. Our frugal living is a big part of how I’m able to stay home.
I want to “unschool” my children, whilst traveling, hiking, and going on adventures when they’re a little older. Our days currently consist of lots of play-dates and trips to the library and the park.
