Here are a few words about me.

Let’s face it, meeting people online is always a bit overwrought; especially when it comes to the desperate, almost ham-handed feel to websites professing an ability to tell you something authentically true about someone who had the gaul to put their name in the URL. 

 Not to mention choosing a black + white photo where his adult acne is hard to make out (hypothetically speaking). 

In the spirit of full-disclosure, I’m not famous. I’m not even Internet famous, and this website isn’t an attempt to remedy the two aforementioned realities.  It is, however, an effort in making unbroken eye-contact with sacredness, even if my (and your) eyes start to water. 

In shorthand: I'm a writer, a pastor, and a therapist trying to follow the resurrected Jesus, even if I limp most days.

I have a wife, son, and pug who matter more to me than you do.

I live in Knoxville, TN, and will never apologize for loving Cracker Barrel, Dolly Parton, and expensive chairs that I pretend are comfortable.
