I’m a 37-year-old Presbyterian minister living and working in Raleigh, North Carolina. I serve as the Associate for Small Church Ministries and Technology in New Hope Presbytery, the regional church body serving the northeastern quadrant of North Carolina. My work involves visiting our 122 congregations from the Research Triangle to the Outer Banks and assisting them with deepening their ministries and taking advantage of technological tools to connect them to one another and the world. I previously served eleven years as the pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Whitestone and three years as Stated Clerk of the Presbytery of New York City.
Beyond my day-to-day work in the church, I am quite a music lover. I subscribe to Peter Schickele’s simple motto: “If it sounds good, it is good.” I enjoy making music and sing tenor with the North Carolina Master Chorale.
Before my time in New York City, I grew up in Brandon, Mississippi, and graduated from the University of Mississippi and Columbia Theological Seminary. Beyond the church and music, my interests include Apple computers, theater, history, transportation systems, and random knowledge. I’m also a bit of a soccer fan and am a supporter of the New York Red Bulls.
