Author / Editor

I started writing a personal blog in 2009 as a creative outlet. Since then, I’ve published 4 books. I write inspiration (I call it soul food) and what I’m learning about in my daily walk. I also craft magazine articles. I guess I’m an ok writer as I also found my way into editing for other writers. It’s fun stuff!

I am a Writer and a Professional Geologist…

who is also quite passionate about sailing, reading, running, anything outdoors, family, cooking, travel, music, and life!

I am a happy, optimistic follower of Jesus…

who wants to learn more about and draw closer to Him.

I live each day to it’s fullest and greet each and every day with a pep in my step and a smile.

I can be a little goofy at times…


I am just being me!

While I endeavor to write a blog at each of my professional websites regularly, I also write about my musings and other endeavors here on this website. It’s what I call my personal journal.

You see, I’m a bit of a renaissance man. Yep, that’s right, I dabble in a variety of ventures that I enjoy. And I will sometimes write about them!
