New Orleans is an interesting place to grow up. I didn’t realize how interesting it was until after I’d visited a lot of other places. In New Orleans music flows free and people are legally allowed to walk outside while they drink beer.
There’s an open and unconventional way about this place. And I think that’s shaped me a little.
I graduated from the University of New Orleans in 2006 with a bachelor’s in Marketing. I spent the next decade in international logistics moving humanitarian aid cargo all over the world. In 2015 I graduated with a master’s in Christian Apologetics, and today I am the Marketing Strategist for the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.
In 2016 I started a group that teaches the church the elements of narrative and how that relates to sharing and living out the Gospel. That company is called Five Round Rocks. If you’d like to know more, then please sign up to our mailing list to get our latest updates.
I became a follower of Jesus as a little boy. My understanding of that has grown with me. And today I see myself living between two poles. The first is that we live in a hurtful world. And the second is that there’s hope for us.
Somewhere in the middle of this Jesus has planted in me a desire to help others know Him and live in His hope.
If I have a single light in all of this, it’s Him.
My wife, Kristin, helps me everyday on this meandering path.
She’s my metronome. She teaches me
how to use a filter, and she pushes me to fight more than I sometimes want to.
In 2013 a new kind of love entered our lives.
And again in 2015.
Graham and Hadley.
There is no substitute for their sweet spirits. We live our todays for their futures.
I am the author of the book, Life Hacking Spiritual Disciplines, a practical guide to carving out a daily time of prayer. My next book, How to Colonize Mars, is an everyman’s guide to discipleship. It is due out Fall 2017.
