about me

I write about trauma and theology. I preach regularly in local churches in NYC. Ask about guest preaching!

…going for transparency here, but it’s not easy… i started writing because i had to write. i was in too much pain not to write. now i write because i’m not suffering the way i used to and i’m thankful for the way God has walked with me even through the darkest valleys…
