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.  

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 are continually the most interesting things about me.

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