I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.A. in Psychology/Human Resource Development from North Carolina State University (1998) with an emphasis in Psychometrics and Crisis Intervention. I received my Master of Divinity from Duke (2001). I’m an ordained Elder (2006) in the Western NC Conference of the United Methodist Church and am endorsed as a chaplain (2018). I served as a pastor for 17 years, first in Oldham, England (a suburb of Manchester) followed by appointments in the Piedmont-Triad of NC. I’m the former Pastor-in-Residence of the Wesley-Luther Fellowship at UNC Greensboro, an LGBTQ-inclusive ministry. I served as a chaplain at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center caring for the substance abuse patients and adult behavioral health patients. I now work as a hospice chaplain. I am attending HBCU North Carolina Central University where I am working on my MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I’m also a husband to Summer, a father to Sophie, an admitted cigar-arsonist, a creative, a subversive, who is living with clinical depression.
