Vital Stats

I write because I am compelled to tell stories and explore moments with words.

I’m passionate about the arts, the church, and the intersection of the two. I am passionate about family. My own consists of one amazing and long-suffering woman whom I will never deserve but is okay with that, one constantly-coloring little girl, one blonde agent of chaos, one toddler with a seriously old soul, and a newborn with a warrior’s heart. Also, barring my wife, they’re all under five. Our house and lives are full to the brim.

I work with LeaderSource SGA telling their stories of God’s work through leadership development training. I have been published in Reformed Worship and Wax Poetry and Art, and my original script “Just As They Had Been Told” was performed to a Chicagoland audience of over 8000 at Moody Bible Institute’s 2016 Candlelight Carols. I have published scripts, liturgies, poetry, and devotionals for my church over the years we have been there – they are one of my favorite venues for my writing.

This website is where I experiment. It is for musings, writings, poems, prayers, liturgies, and stories. I hope you come away from this place with something weighty to chew on, with a little more joy and hope, and with the knowledge that every moment of your life has meaning and matters more than you can know.

Welcome.
