i’m not much on committees.  there are certainly no awards given to “best committee” at the oscars – but i am certainly into working with those you admire and respect.  i’ve had a chance to work with some great companies and great people recently.  interested in working with me?


kent youngstrom is a painter. alexandra franzen is a writer. they met on the internet. but not in a romantic way.

kent liked alex’s words. alex liked kent’s paintings. much like peanut butter + chocolate, gin + tonic (or bacon + anything), they thought, “our stuff would be better, together.”

the result? a collection of high-inspiration wall art with an edgy spirit + a simple reminder: your dreams are delightfully doable and a  new collection of ravenously alluring poster prints.

we are a church fueled by great faith and we’ve seen God do things that only He can do – thousands of lives changed, marriages restored, families healed and hearts made whole. and as God continues to increase the size of our platform, we are aggressively pursuing opportunities to reach more and more people with the life-saving message of the gospel in both our city and our world.

through the use of preaching, worship, and creativity, we strive to present the timeless message of jesus christ in a clear and fresh way. and although our approach to church is anything but traditional, we believe in and maintain a conservative theological position.

meet lulu…

she’s a globe-trotting romantic. a girl who passionately seeks the thrill of adventure and feels most at home when she’s jet-setting to exotic hideaways, vintage suitcase in tow. she’ll spend hours scouring flea markets and antique fairs for that perfect, glittery, decorative accent piece and has a special place in her heart for funky, slightly-flawed little treasures. she fills her home with artwork, and appreciates rugs with vibrant hues and unconventional patterns. she loves to paint, draw, and dance, and will never leave home without her favorite pair of five-inch heels.

meet georgia…

she’s an extravagant hostess. she bakes madeleines and macaroons, and cooks her best with a glass of french wine in hand. she enjoys leisurely lunches with friends and browsing home decor shops. she has a discerning eye for style, and an impeccable ability to pair colors, textures, and patterns. she’s the first one to tell you whether or not that moroccan-style rug works in your living room, or if that vintage brass lamp was worth the price. her home exudes luxury and glamour, and you’ll always find a vase of pink peonies on her bedside table.

they must like me as well.
