A little more about me

I earned my M.Div. from Emory University’s Candler School of Theology where my studies focused on progressive and liberation theologies. While at Candler I engaged deep study of pastoral counseling, contemplative practices, constructivist pedagogy and a myriad of soulful shenanigans. 

Since 2008, I’ve led hundreds of hours of in person and online spiritual practices in forests, parks, schools, pubs, Second Life, Livestream.com, Zoom and on Facebook.

I am currently living in The Netherlands where I moved with my wife five years ago. Previously I’ve worked as…

  • the director of digital strategy at Agnes Scott College,
  • minister of digital community with Extravagance UCC,
  • an online teacher and organizer for the Center for Progressive Renewal and The Beatitudes Society,
  • chaplain at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta,
  • instructional technology specialist for the Neighborhood Charter School,
  • stage manager for over a dozen productions,
  • educational tour guide at Zoo Atlanta,
  • and aerial photographer!

 
I am also:

Veriditas trained labyrinth guide;
certified as an outdoor life coach;
an ANFT nature therapy guide student
and actively engaged in Active Hope learning experiences.

 
The golden thread running through my life’s journey is a persistent calling to find, as Frederick Buechner describes, the place where my deep gladness meets the world’s deep hunger. I hope that this offering will be one in which we can flourish and discern together how best to live into that fiercely tender calling.
