My name is Bill and I am in love with Jesus, my wife Joyce and our beautiful boys, Brave and Brayden. Each of which I owe much more love, honor and respect to than I can comprehend possible.
I’m the IT Director for a company right here in Wentzville, I’m very blessed to have this position. Even though my profession is dependent on some Microsoft products, I do prefer Apple and Ubuntu Linux. My tech blog can be found @ Basher.Tech
My passion for the arts lie in photography, video, motion and graphic design. I’ve been known to design a few websites, currently I’m really into creating themes for WordPress and learning CSS. I serve as Communication Lead Servant at my awesome church, Peine Ridge Church, this is where I mainly use my gifts in design. As you get older, hobbies seem to come and go, but riding dual sport adventures has captivated me. Riding on two-wheels through God’s creation really re-fuels me. It helps me be more creative. I feel refreshed after a long ride. The time I get to ponder life, pray and think about the tasks ahead are priceless for me.
Living Sacrifice, For Today, War of Ages, Explosions in the Sky, Russian Circles, Caspian, Jon Foreman, The Lumineers, Band of Horses, Mumford & Sons, Bon Iver, Gregory Alan Isakov, Joe Pug, Johnny Cash and I dig listening to composers/movie soundtracks too.
Adventure riding, videography, photography, graphic design, hockey, drums, BMX, mountain biking, camping, playing with my boys, enjoying life with my wife, theology, studying my Bible, reading great works from courageous men of God.
Most importantly, the struggle to become the man God has enlisted me to be. While this sounds so typical, it truly is the biggest responsibility and honor any man could ask for. Though God does not need anything I could offer, I find joy in serving him with my gifts and pray, in all, it glorifies his name.
Hebrews 13:15-16 – “Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name. Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.”
