I have a degree in accounting but I’ve been writing, coaching and helping others… since I could talk! Nothing makes me happier than using stories with a message that will change their lives – especially with high schoolers, college age, young adults, and men in their 30’s.

A Little About Me

I quit my full-time accounting position to chase my dream of being a writer and storyteller. I was inspired by a friend, who told me, “sometimes being brave feels like being really, really, scared.” While at first glance this sounds a bit foolish, I now realize God has been preparing me for this challenge over the last four years–if not even longer.

In my spare time I’m also a guitarist, Batman fanatic and basketball player. Here I am post-victory with some good friends. Sometimes I like to pretend I’m a basketball playing pirate and wear a do-rag.

I also like to take pictures with my family leaning on fences like this.
