Many years ago I was captured by the message that God loves you and me, has demonstrated that love by taking action on our behalf, and frees us to be fully alive. As a grateful recipient of God’s grace, you and I are transformed and renewed to live loving and grace-filled lives.

An ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), I serve as Associate Pastor for a congregation in Connecticut. Before ordination, I worked as a youth worker for two different congregations in the Seattle area, and served as a regular guest lecturer and adjunct faculty for a local university.

A graduate of Northwest University (B.A. Biblical Literature, 1997) and Western Seminary (M.Div, 2011), I also studied at Mars Hill Graduate School (now The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology) from 2000-2002.

So what’s this webpage about? In many ways, this is a work in progress (and if you have visited this page previously, you understand just how true this statement is!). It also serves as a repository of thoughts and stories gathered along life’s way. Some serious, some more silly — still others that are a little bit of both. At some level this page serves as a faith story — my own, but perhaps there might be something here that resonates with you as well. With this in mind, my hope is that what you encounter here might spark your own wonderings and imagination, and that you too might be captured by that message of God’s love for you, which really is good news.
