Where do you Live: Tipp City, Ohio ( A Dayton Suburb)
What you do as a vocation or avocation? I mostly get to play. My primary focus is graphic design/motion graphics, video editing, and most things media related. I’ve also written a few books, and one of the most fun things I do is speak at seminars on worship. In addition to all of this I’m an adjunct professor for Northwest Nazarene University.
Your two favorite books:
Horton Hears a Who has become a favorite of the stories I have to read my three year old every night.
Your two favorite songs: That’s a hard one…I really like Vertical Horizon’s “Everything You Want,” and I’m also a fan of “The Reason” by Hoobastank
Why you are interested in spirituality? Spirituality sounds so Oprah-ish. I wouldn’t say that I’m interested in Spirituality as much as I’m interested in a real, living relationship with my God. To be even more specific, I’m interested in Jesus Christ, His teachings, His story, and His presence in my life. I also enjoy seeing Him in others.

Your hero? One of my heroes is Larry “the father of Christian rock” Norman. What he did in following his heart with his music and lyrics in a time when there was no “Christian music industry” is so inspiring. He took so much heat from the religious establishment for what he was doing, but he kept on doing it. He had a huge impact on the lives of so many who in turn have had an impact on other lives.
A spiritual lesson you hope to learn? I am often too quick to judge. I hope that God will continue to open my heart and my mind to new things.
A place in the world where you feel spiritually “connected?” When my heart is in the right place, anywhere I am can become that place.
