Thanks for checking out my blog; I hope you have enjoyed it so far.
Here is a little bit about me:
I grew up in Indiana and Iowa before completing a Masters of Divinity [M.Div.] at Princeton Theological Seminary [NJ]. I have worked in a variety of settings, including the Presbyterian Church (USA) and United Church of Christ (UCC) in Philadelphia, Hawai’i, Mexico, and Michigan. Currently, I am the founder and Executive Director of The Welcome Project PA, a nonprofit that houses the area’s only LGBTQIA+ Community Center & Queer Library, as well as immigration justice and mental health programs. I am also Pastor of Love in Action United Church of Christ, a progressive, Christian, LGBTQIA+ affirming and interfaith community in Hatboro, a suburb of Philadelphia. I also hold a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre/Speech from Northwestern College (IA).
I’m also a theater nerd! I am trained as a stage actor and perform regularly with the dinner theatre company, Without a Cue Productions, LLC. I have also developed theatre arts curriculum for use in worship, youth groups, education, and group-building.
I’m committed to promoting religious pluralism and partnering with people of all faiths and those who identify as atheist or agnostic to build bridges of shared values and cooperation. I’m honored to work with Interfaith Philadelphia as a Fellow and a Consultant.
I also enjoy playing basketball, singing, traveling, learning language, or making strange and funny faces. I currently live in Center City Philly.

Meanwhile, maybe I will see you sometime if I am performing in a show with the dinner theater company, Without a Cue Productions, and hopefully you’ll have a good laugh and a great experience.
Or, you may see me at a mosque, synagogue, Sikh gurdwara, church, or Buddhist community, or Hindu temple with students–relating, learning, and building bridges.
Or, you may spot me at a Philadelphia Union match or along the Schuylkill Banks trail.
