First and foremost, I am a child of the King. 

I will be the first to tell you I am undeserving of the grace and forgiveness I have received.  It is this recognition that makes me eager to walk ever deeper into an authentic relationship with the resurrected Savior who provided that grace and forgiveness.

Next, I am a husband and a father. 

I am married to the love of my life, Brooke, and together we have three children: Jude, Gambrell (Brell), and Hope.

As an author, I am focused on helping readers recognize the face of Jesus.

I am passionate about inspiring others to summon the courage to move beyond an intellectual pursuit of God and into a dynamic, authentic discovery of Him.  I write with a constant mind toward pointing readers back into a personal and interactive walk with their Savior.  It is a journey that I myself am taking, and hope to share with my readers.

As a public policy professional: 

I am the Director of Government Affairs for the American Center for Law and Justice and have 17 years of high-level public policy experience.  My work is focused on the U.S. Congress and the United Nations.  I am a regular on-air contributor to the daily syndicated radio broadcast, Jay Sekulow Live!

My recreational passions include...

the Chicago Cubs, all things outdoors, triathlons (only the short variety), and a bit of woodworking (a passion inherited from my grandpa).

I hail from the cornfields of Central Illinois and hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management from National Louis University.  Our family lives in Fort Washington, Maryland, where we are grateful to be a part of the National Community Church family in Washington, D.C.
