University Minister and Writer in Berkeley, California

Read my articles

I tell stories. Sometimes for my clients. Sometimes about calling and moving to England and living in C. S. Lewis's home. Most often about life and faith and God.

I'm a former marketing / PR guy from the Pacific Northwest who left the States to study Theology at Oxford and write in a way that helps others see the in-breaking of Christ's Kingdom in the darkness of our world. I got my Oxford degree, then I went to Duke Divinity School. Now I'm a University Minister in Berkeley, working with Cal students at First Pres Berkeley.

My memoir on calling, Called: My Journey to C.S. Lewis's House and Back Again, released in 2015 (Leafwood Publishers). I'm represented by Amanda Luedeke of MacGregor Literary Agency.

I have written forChristianity Today,Image Journal,Duke University Chapel,Bible Study Magazine, andRelevant magazine.You can watch a short video of my story, listen to talks I've given, and follow me below.
