My journey has been long, wandering, and sometimes flat out confusing but it has, at every point, shaped me into who and what I am.
Born on the East side of Akron, Ohio, the fourth son of a United Methodist Pastor. Along the way I’ve lived in Stow, Millersburg, South Akron (Kenmore), Ada (Ohio Northern University), Kenmore (again), Barberton, Manchester (near Canal Fulton), Johnsville (Shauck), Barnesville, and Perry Heights (Massillon) and worked in Cleveland (Independence), Massillon, North Canton.
Since going into ministry I have served in the churches of Johnsville/Steam Corners, Barnesville First, and now Massillon Trinity (Perry Heights).
I also spent ten years in the Army Reserve with the 251st Trans Co. (TT) in Kenton, OH and the 706th Trans. Co. in Mansfield, OH including deployments all over the world and six months active duty at Fort Campbell, KY during Desert Storm.
