I am an instigator of curious living and the creator and curator of this blog. I am also a husband, dad, communicator, coach, photographer, and writer. My wife Rene and I met when we were just 15 years old and fell in love. We’ve been married for almost 29 years and have two amazing children, Ruby and Cole. As a communicator, I have been part of the teaching team at Parkview Christian Church and Christ’s Church of the Valley. I am also the Vice President of Senior Leadership at Slingshot Group, where I oversee coaching and staffing for Lead, Teaching, and Executive Pastors.

I met my wife, Rene, when we were in the 9th grade and I was looking for two things in a girl in the big 80’s … feathered hair and braces, and Rene had them both! She had reached “babehood” way early, and we fell in love. We got married in 1990 and we will celebrate 32 years of marriage this August! (ReneClark.com)
In 1998 we had Ruby. The first girl born in the Clark family since the mid 1800’s! Seriously, it has been all boys in the Clark clan until Ruby came along. She is an amazing girl with a heart for the world and a very active Twitter account! (@RubyLClark)
In 2000 Cole came along. We call him Coletrain. Cole is one of the most unique, creative, confident, sporty, artsy young men on the planet. I love watching him explore new things. We love to watch movies, DJ, and have long talks over coffee together. (@ColeLClark)
I have been on the teaching team at Parkview Christian Church in Chicagoland for the past 7 1/2 years. And before joining the team at Parkview I was on the teaching team at Christ’s Church of the Valley in Phoenix, Arizona. Each weekend over 40,000 people gather across 12 campuses to hear the Bible explained in a way that is relevant & meaningful to our everyday lives. We currently live in Huntington Beach, CA.
And the founder of Eat Art, an eclectic collection of artists who are committed to artfully ending hunger. In the last five years we have sent hope and over 350,000 meals to hungry kids! When I travel to places to speak and lead, I always have my iPhone and Nikon D3 with me.

SECOND HAND FAITH is another leadership parable that is percolating in my mind!
“MY FAVORITE YEAR” is a screen play that I’d love to finish in the next 5 years.
