Now let me introduce myself informally. I am a big kid at heart – reading comic books, watching the Flash Series, and playing tabletop games. I dabble in game design and love playing games. I love laughter and have an unapparelled optimism that can be challenging for me to manage sometimes. In addition, I love deep philosophical and theological discussions that challenge the mind and soul. I am a creative individual that is always looking for the ‘and’ solution. I love working with others collaboratively but can make the tough decisions when needed.

I know there is more to me – but let’s leave that till later!


I look forward to meeting you. The book of Ecclesiastes begins with the question – what is the purpose of life?. (See verse 3). And it ends with, there is no answer to the question about the purpose of life, but if one follows God the journey of life is better than if one doesn’t. Life is a journey and with COVID-19, it has been a journey like none-other as it has turned the way to live upside down.
