about me.

after working in the church for the last several years, i’m now partnering with my dear friend and colleague andrew marin in chicago – serving as the associate director at The Marin Foundation. it’s a perfect fit for my passions, experiences and desire to inspire thoughtful conversation and intentional movement toward reconciliation.

i talk with a lot of people, read a lot of books and drink an ungodly amount of coffee and guinness.

the lessons from the journey of navigating the pain of my past and the challenges of restoring what’s been broken leave much for me to embrace and much for me to leave behind on the WayWard path of  learning to live and love like jesus.

i’m grateful for the friendships and communities of which i’ve been fortunate to be a part, and am continually in the process of learning, provoking, asking questions and challenging the status quo. i am convinced we can do better. my forthcoming (and first!) book Love Never Fails (IVP, march 2015), talks about this in regard to the cultural disconnect with evangelical churches and the gay community.

i’m energized by engaging in conversation with my readers, and look forward to hearing about your own journeys and challenges; figuring out how we can each walk alongside one another as we together learn to love well.
