at Tahquamenon Falls, Michigan

Together, we all make up this world, each with our own unique perspective. We all have our contributions to make. This website is part of my slice of life’s pie, my corner of the web, my piece of the puzzle… it also serves as a gateway to other places on the internet where I have a presence.

I fancy myself an author and poet. I’m also an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, serving at Phoenix Community Church since February of 2010. I grew up in northern Michigan and have lived mostly in or near Kalamazoo, MI, since 1984. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from Kalamazoo College, a Master of Science degree in Computer Science from Western Michigan University, and a Master of Arts degree in Religious Studies and a Master of Divinity degree from Chicago Theological Seminary. My hobbies include reading (especially science fiction and fantasy), golf, and following Detroit Tigers baseball.
