Vision Lead / San Diego, CA

As a middle school teacher, Rob is disturbed with the worldview imposed on young people by the dominant culture. He didn’t embrace being a writer until 2015 while seeing God’s revelatory power capturing students’ imaginations through allegory.

He is currently working on a children’s story about growing into the big fish in a small, polluted pond. Through a series of adventures, the protagonist discovers that life grows meaningful and exciting when we sincerely ask the right questions.

Rob’s greatest desire is to ignite thoughts that stimulate a vision to be a world changer. No matter how inadequate young people may feel, they yearn to be released to greatness. This only happens when asking better questions about themselves and their purpose. Rob writes to release seekers, trusting God to reveal Himself. He prays that God will use his books to impact the trajectory of kids’ lives and legacy.
