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 served 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.
