Nate is an author & social entrepreneur who helps us find more meaning in the ordinary, everyday moments of our lives.


He enjoys eating peanut-butter toast, cracking up at his own jokes, and climbing the Rocky Mountains.

Nate and his wife, Erin, were raised in Chicago and now hail from Denver. After moving cities and cycling through a rapid series of major life changes, Nate launched his career as an author, building on his experience co-founding a social venture that was acquired by a major, national organization, and as a frequent speaker on storytelling for nonprofit leaders.

His recent book, Living Forward, Looking Backward, helps us discover the deep purpose and meaning hiding inside our own life stories. Through Nate's memories, stories, and candor, we learn how the principle of paradox and the story of the Gospel shows up in each of our lives, often in ways we don't expect, and ways that feel even a little backward to us.
